Subhash Suri (born July 7, 1960)[1] is an Indian-American computer scientist, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is known for his research in computational geometry, computer networks, and algorithmic game theory.

Biography[edit]

Suri did his undergraduate studies at the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, graduating in 1981. He then worked as a programmer in India before beginning his graduate studies in 1984 at Johns Hopkins University, where he earned a Ph.D. in computer science in 1987 under the supervision of Joseph O'Rourke. He was a member of the technical staff at Bellcore until 1994, when he returned to academia as an associate professor at Washington University in St. Louis. He moved to a full professorship at UCSB in 2000.[1]

He was program committee chair for the 7th Annual International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation in 1996,[1] and program committee co-chair for the 18th ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry in 2002.[2]

Curious Facts[edit]

Subhash Suri has an Erdős number of 2 through five paths: He has collaborated with Noga Alon, Boris Aronov, Fan Rong Chung, Richard Pollack and Foong Frances Yao, all of whom have collaborated with Paul Erdős.[3]
