I do research on a number of seemingly unrelated areas: design of algorithms for evolutionary tree recovery, teaching computers to write poems, analysis of music lyrics and genres, and harm reduction in gambling. It’s a funny career.
I’m the treasurer of the Faculty Association, and am serving on the Faculty Relations Committee. Previously, I’ve been quite active on FAUW’s Equity Committee, and on Senate. I am also my unit’s undergraduate director.
My partner Daniel and I, and our dog Rover, live in a loft in downtown Kitchener, where I cheerily garden tomatoes 20 metres in the sky.
