I'm a postdoctoral fellow working in
Brendan Frey's machine learning and genomics
group.
My PhD was about fast optimization in computer vision, supervised by
Yuri Boykov and
Olga Veksler
at
Western University.
I received my BMath in computer science from the
University of Waterloo, and have also worked fulltime in the graphics industry,
mainly on
Alias Maya (now Autodesk Maya).
These days I develop deep learning techniques tailored for genomics and computational biology data — it's all very exciting!

when you’re doing the small things,
so that all the small things,
