History

I was born in 1991 in Toronto, Ontario. I completed my bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at University of Waterloo in 2014, and my masters degree at the same university in 2017.

Research interests

My research is in the kinematic and dynamic modelling of hard gear shaping with the end goal of significantly reducing cycle time while increasing or maintaining part quality in comparison to traditional processes.

Hobbies and activities

I spend most of my free time building robots, watching movies, and playing video games. I also enjoy playing squash, golf, and weight lifting.
