My research is in the area of nuclear physics, using the atomic nucleus as a laboratory to understand the fundamental forces of nature, the origins of the elements in the Universe, and how simple patterns emerge from complex systems.
I examine marine conservation policy and governance, from local to global scales. I explore how decisions are made, how science and other kinds of knowledge inform these decisions, how various actors influence decision-making processes, and who benefits (or loses) as a result.
My research uses mathematical models and computer simulation to help identify improved infectious disease prevention and control strategies in both humans and animals. Our work has a significant impact on public health and veterinary health, by strengthening planning and disease control strategies to prevent infectious disease outbreaks.
My general research interests are interdisciplinary, and straddle the disciplines of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Currently, I have particular interest in developing algorithmic solutions to optimization problems that arise in both FPGA and VLSI design flows. My other active areas of research include...
The programs within the College of Business and Economics are filled with knowledgeable, accomplished academics who are also nice people. Unlike some programs where graduate students are treated like they're just a number, at Guelph graduate students are treated like colleagues. It's a nice environment to be in while receiving a top-notch education.
