Welcome To My Personal Website
I am currently an Associate Professor for the Software Systems Engineering program in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Regina. Previous to my current position, I was employed as a full-time Research Engineer and Manager for TRLabs Regina for approximately eleven years. TRLabs was Canada’s largest information and communications technology R&D consortium. My research experience is both academic and industry related as I have conducted numerous research and development projects in cooperation with TRLabs’ industry sponsors including notable companies such as Telus, SaskTel and PMC-Sierra.
My research interests are varied but are currently focused on machine learning and contextually aware software and devices that provide ubiquitous and dynamic collection and distribution of information and media. This research area covers the integration and development of software systems that provide seamless access, distribution, location awareness and dynamic delivery of information and media. It also extends to real-time mining of on-line social network data for categorization of social conscience trends through semantic and sentiment analysis techniques and the use of machine learning in music categorization and video game techniques and assets.
