News 2012-05-30 :: Master's Degree Finished
I have finally graduated from UBC (again), completing my Master of Computer Science degree. My congregation ceremony was this week which has made it final. Now to move on to greater things!
2012-04-25 :: Master's Thesis Published
My thesis has been checked and published online. The link is below in the publication section. I would like to thank everyone involved.
2011-01-17 :: Classes Finished
All my Grad courses are now complete. Just need to finish up my research now.
2010-05-17 :: In the NSS
I have finished my first couple terms of courses and now working on several small projects during the summer. My main focus during the summer will be exploring the FG-MPI package and expanding the applications used by this package.
2009-08-17 :: Master's Term Begins
I am starting my new graduate term for a Master's of Computer Science, this coming September. I'll be TA'ing CPSC 430 - Computers and Society, this term as well. I am looking forward to starting my Master's Program.
2008-09-26 :: Graduate Courses
A new school year has come and I've decided to sit in on CPSC 540 - Machine Learning and CPSC 521 - Parallel Algorithms. With CPSC 521 I've started to learn a lot of MPI programming, and now more thoroughly able to use proper parallel programming in my projects. I hope to use distributing and parallel computing more in the future.
2007-05-02 :: Research Technician
I have accepted the position to work with the earth and ocean science department at UBC. I'll be working as a scientific programmer/research technician for the Seismic Laboratory for Imaging and Modeling (SLIM). This looks exciting and I look forward to challenging myself with SLIM.
2006-16-05 :: Graduation
So it's finally here... graduation. Time to start working for a bit and hopefully back to graduate school soon, maybe some traveling. Scary!
2005-11-04 :: Exams
Hello everyone, a little bit more than half way through my first term. I am enjoying all my classes. My AI class has a lot of interesting information that I will be able to use with a couple of my current projects. I would also like to mention I am enjoying my computers in society course which has greatly expanded my knowledge on privacy with internet. Hope all you exams are going well and enjoy.
2005-09-02 :: Back to UBC
Well it is that time of year again, and I am moving into gage to start it. I look forward to my classes this year and seeing all my friends again. Have a great semester everyone!
2005-06-14 :: Teaching Assistant
I have been accepted to TA CPSC 100. For those of you who do not know, CPSC 100 is an introduction to computers. The first lab consists of turning on the computer and logging in. It teaches up to some visual basic programming. I am extremely excited in becoming a teacher assistant and look forward to working with the students.
2005-05-14 :: Term Over
The school term is finally over. One more year to go... it is a bit scary.
Parallel Computation, Distributed Computing, Parallel Programming and Algorithms
Peer-to-peer Protocol and Grid/Cloud Computing
Distributed Databases and Data Mining
Virtualization and Security Methods
Time-sensitive Gaming Algorithms and Design
Networking and Communication Patterns
Computational and Artificial Intelligence
Machine Learning and Parallelizable Bayesian Networks
GPU and CUDA Programming
In the future I would like to concentrate my efforts in parallel processing and peer-to-peer algorithm design. I have always had a general interest in computers and plan to expand this interest using these subjects. Outside the realm of computers I enjoy photography and playing the guitar.
