I am a computer scientist, robotics educator, and aspiring cryptographer. Paid to do appsec and pen-testing work at Entrust; opinions here are my own.
I am currently working as a C++ and Java developer in the public-key infrastructure, cryptography, and authentication domains.
I hold a Master's degree from McGill University's School of Computer Science. I studied robotics, specifically computer vision and path planning.
While at McGill, I held a Tomlinson Teaching Fellowship, the main focus of which was to train graduate teaching assistants in the use of Active Learning Strategies in the classroom.
I have been involved in the FIRST Robotics competition since 2004 as a student and a mentor, which has massively shaped my life.
