About

I am currently on professional development (PD) leave to study for my Doctor of Philosophy in Computing Science at Simon Fraser University (SFU). Before my PD leave from British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) I was as a full-time researcher at the applied research Technology Centre (TC) researching the Smart Grid in the areas of system and web architectures, home area networks (HAN), and embedded systems.

My areas of research interest include: eco-sustainability, eco-feedback, intelligent systems, and sensor networks.

My areas of interest in intelligent systems include: rules, logic, neural nets, artificial life, distributed intelligence, and evolutionary algorithms.
