I’m a graduate of the University of Ottawa, where I completed a joint degree program (BaSc. – Chemical Engineering / BSc. – Computer Technology). I have also completed a BSc. from Memorial University, where I majored in Biochemistry. These programs have allowed me to develop strong analytical skills with a broad knowledge of the pure sciences.
I’m now an employee with the Government of Canada at Transport Canada. In my current position as junior engineer, research & development, I’ve worked on developing a collaboration environment for engaging Transport Canada’s stakeholders (e.g., academia, government, industry). As part of that work, I maintained project documentation, engaged with other government branches/departments, and developed the requirements of the environment. In recent months, I have started to gain more knowledge of permafrost and the challenges that its degradation poses for transportation infrastructure in Northern Canada.
Apart from my educational background and work experience, I’m an avid cyclist (check out my Runkeeper account), a lifelong learner, a big fan of music, and an even bigger fan of anything computer-related (e.g., web development, programming, blogging, etc.).
