I write software for radio telescopes, with my main focus being the CHIME Telescope. The system I currently work on the most is the 1024 GPU supercomputer used for the real-time processing of signals from CHIME's 2048 analog inputs.

My background is in Computer Science, with a BCS from the University of Waterloo. Areas of interest include high performance computing (with GPUs in particular), high speed computer networks, image processing, grid computing, statistics, cryptography, and astrophysics.

My other interests include: photography, cycling, canoeing, embedded systems, and sketching.

You can see more of the research I'm involved in on the research page.
