About

I am a Research Engineer in the Autonomous Technologies and Robotics group at the Bosch Research and Technology Center North America.

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Windsor in 2012. I worked in the Advanced Control Systems Laboratory, researching 3D and multi-camera computer vision, under the supervision of Dr. Xiang Chen.

I am an open source software developer. I have worked on Visual, a 3D graphics module for Python with a friendly API, and Thousand Parsec, a framework for turn-based space empire building games, and contributed to a number of other large projects. I also maintain several smaller projects.
