Application Development & Data Science

About

I'm looking forward to learning about new technologies, and finding ways to engineer new and novel applications.

Business

I've been refining my skills with over five years of application development experience, with much of the time being focused on enterprise software systems.

Always being interested in new technologies and audiences, I've become familiar with developing for desktop, mobile, and web-based platforms.

Having created software for both small business and enterprise institutions, I've worn the hats of a frontline developer, project lead, systems analyst, and junior business systems analyst. I've been able to explore both independent, freelance positions, and opportunities where I was member of a large team.

Business applications have been varied, leading to a working knowledge of common asset management, workflow, and finance systems, and experience in performing third-party systems integrations.

Academic

Research has recently completed, culminating in the thesis Image Evolution Using 2D Power Spectra (below) which uses signal processing features and explores models of computational aesthetics to evolve new and novel images from an existing piece.

Research topics which have been explored include:

  • Evolutionary Computation
  • Signal Processing & Information Theory
  • Machine Learning
  • Computer Vision
  • Computer Graphics

Since the beginning of 2015, I had been furthering my education with part-time graduate studies through Brock University's Masters programme in Computer Science under the supervision of Professor Brian Ross. I've recently completed my studies, successfully defended my thesis, and was conferred my MSc. Computer Science.
