I was born in Naini Tal, India, and educated at the University of Chicago, where I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics (Differential Geometry and Topology) in 1987.  After teaching at Northwestern University for a year, I moved to the University of Wisconsin, Madison, as a Van Vleck Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department.  In 1992 I became interested in the applications of differential geometry to computer vision, and the following year, I spent six months as an SERC Visiting Fellow in the Program in Computer Vision at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge.  In 1994, I became an Associate Scientist in the Mechanical Engineering Department and later at the Center for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin.  Subsequently, I moved to WHOI, where, since 2003,  I have been a Research Specialist in the Biology Department.
