About Me

I am currently in my last term of Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I enjoy finding engineering solutions to automation, integration, control and machine learning problems. My fourth year studies focus on these areas, but more specifically I took courses in discrete and continuous multivariable control, autonomous robots, system automation and integration, robotic manipulators and computational intelligence.

Over the past five years I have worked, as a coop, at OpenText, The Department of Defense, Public Safety Canada and most recently at Thalmic Labs. Throughout my coop terms I have done customer support and system administrator work to designing and implementing resource flow modelling and simulations. I believe in and strive for efficiency in all things. This includes algorithms themselves, but also workflows and data storage and usage. I have been the instigator and integral part of rebuilding a data workflow and storage procedure and design at one of my coops.

I enjoy the tech world and in my free time I like keeping up with new developments. I enjoy trying and hacking away at these new technologies whenever I can. I am also an avid outdoors person. I enjoy and take part in nearly all sports. Recently my interests have been focused on rock climbing, slacklining and road biking.
