I am currently working on a Phd at the University of Waterloo.
My Phd supervisor is Prof Jay Black of the
Networks & Distributed Systems Group.
Some courses that I have recently attended:
Two areas that I am actively pursuing are
Wireless Data Communications with Network Security Protocols and Robotics.
If you are interested in Wireless Sensor Networks, I have created an Installation guide for the Mica2
motes (TinyOS+TinyDB) designed to walk you through the process of installing, configuring and compiling the various
pieces in order to get a system up and running quickly.
As part of the Formal Languages course, we were required to research a topic and create a small report to be presented in class.
The topic I chose was Gray Codes. Here is a web page with some information about
Gray Codes as well as the report. The report includes my microcontroller based experiment that demonstrates the Gray Code
concepts used in a rotary encoder.
My interests are varied.
I have an advanced Ham Radio
licence (VE3PZR/VE3UWO) and have a background in electronics which allows me to combine hardware and software projects. I enjoy
prototyping microcontroller based gadgets to make my life easier.
I am also interested in aviation. I currently hold an advanced ultralight permit, recreational flying permit, private pilot license and a night flying permit.
I generally respond to all email. If you have a radio, microcontroller or robotic project and want to chat, drop me a line.
