About

I am an MMath (CS) student here at UWaterloo. In 2001, I graduated from UBC with a BASc in Computer Engineering. While I was there, I worked with VLSI cad design and robotics. One cool project I worked on was a remote surgical device with force feedback capabilities. I have a couple of years of working experience, where I worked as the head of the IT department for a company that deals with providing accurate and realistic real-time battlefield simulation for the military. The core of the system involved a sophisticated laser engagement system (similar in concept to laser tag), and this is coupled with a real-time location and status tracking system
