|Alma mater||Dartmouth College, Princeton University|
|Known for||Geometric measure theory|
|Institutions||Oregon State University|
|Doctoral advisor||Frederick J. Almgren, Jr.|
He has developed and implemented a computational technique for computing parametric area minimizing surfaces. He derived an existence and regularity theory for a class of constrained variational problems. Parks has discovered, and characterized, a type of minimal surface with surprising properties, defined in terms of the Jacobi elliptic functions.
