Welcome! I was a PhD Candidate at the University of Victoria, researching databases under the co-supervision of Dr. Alex Thomo, Dr. Venkatesh Srinivasan, and Dr. Sue Whitesides. Together, we published eight papers in the last couple years of my programme. I successfully defended on Friday, 16-Aug-2013.
My research interests are more thoroughly described here, but I primarily investigated top-k-related problems by applying techniques from Computational Geometry. My dissertation featured top-k depth contours, a novel representation of a numeric dataset that leads to efficiently indexing and processing queries, and k-regret minimizing sets, which are a succinct, representative summariztion of a numeric dataset. Beginning in September, I will be a postdoctoral reseacher in the Data-Intensive Systems group at Aarhus University, participating in the WallViz project. For more recent updates, you can visit my AU website.
Outside of my research, I'm a nationally ranked distance runner and a contract database developer.
