NRC Associate Research Officer - University of Waterloo
I am an Associate Research Officer at National Research Council Canada. Previously I was a post-doctoral research associate working with Chris Eliasmith at the Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience at the Universit of Waterloo. My initial training was as an engineer (B.A.Sc. in Systems Design Engineering, University of Waterloo, 1999), my masters involved applying experimental psychology on simulated robots (M.Phil. in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, University of Sussex, 2000), and my Ph.D. was on cognitive modelling (Ph.D. in Cognitive Science, Carleton University, 2007).
I am also a co-founder of Applied Brain Research, a research-based start-up company based around using low-power hardware (neuromorphic computer chips) and adaptive neural algorithms.
