I'm a Master's student at Stanford University, studying Artificial Intelligence. In particular, I'm interested in Natural Language Processing and Data Mining. I'll be graduating in June of 2014. Computing is my passion but I also enjoy photography and pretend to enjoy music, film, food and reading. My favourite algorithm is Welzl's Algorithm for determining minimum enclosing disk.
Before that, I worked in the Kindle org at Amazon.com in Seattle as a software engineer and started the Reading, Mining and Analytics team. I also did some work on the Kindle apps (iOS, Fire Tablet) and some work on Kindle social networks. In the Jurassic era, I graduated from the University of Waterloo in my homeland studying Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Pure Mathematics.
For more typesetting goodness, I have prepared a LaTeX template for University of Waterloo Math work reports.
Otherwise there really isn't too much here. I spend a lot of time hacking away at my own ideas, although nothing has struck gold yet. I have different projects up on github. The most interesting is the Waterloo Course Qualifier which has applied constraint satisfaction to solve Waterloo student scheduling for years.
