WISE NL ROLES: President
DESIGNATION: Communications Project Manager
EDUCATION: B. Eng. (Computer Engineering) from Memorial University (2003)
Growing up, I was always face first into one or more books, and had a great love for science and mathematics. I did very little with computers until my first year of engineering studies, which was a well-rounded introduction to many of the disciplines. The programming course (in Basic, no less) was the one that excited me most. Progressing through a few more courses in discrete mathematics, logic, and algorithm development, and I was hooked! I spent several years at C-CORE working on algorithm and software development for scientific problems brought to us by clients. In 2014, a great opportunity arose and I decided to make a switch to Project Management. The research project I am managing is in the area of optical communications. My team is currently creating simulations and creating Matlab algorithms to solve improve optical communication performance.
I also have had a desire to help others and give back to my community and peers, starting in high school and continuing to this day. My current focus of involvement is two-fold: WISE NL and IEEE.
