I am currently an MSc. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Calgary, having obtained my BSc. from this department in 1993; and a student member of the U of C Micronet MD-DSP Group. Also, I am working full time for Harris Canada in their Wireless Access Division as a DSP Engineer. I spent the 1994/5 school year at Capernwray Harbour Bible Center on Thetis Island, BC, in their one year course. Previously I attended Sir Winston Churchill Senior High School here in Calgary.
My research work, which is finally complete, involved the design and construction of a controllable real time analogue 3-D video filter. The functional, sensitivity and stability analysis of this filter forms the basis of my thesis. While commercial application of these filters is most likely several years in the future, application areas that have already been identified include video compression, traffic analysis, security systems, manufacturing process monitoring and neato special effects. This work was supported by an NSERC PGA scholarship.
In 1992 and 1993 I participated in a joint research project with the Micronet Center of Excellence and NovAtel Communications Ltd. The project investigated microphone array systems and developed an acoustic/electric Spice model for a telephone earpiece transducer.
I currently reside with my wife in the beautiful Greenview district of Calgary and enjoy such amusements as hiking, skiing, bass guitar, ballroom dance and sailing.
