2005-2009 Undergrad: CS, Physics and Math at University of Toronto. 2009-2011 Masters: CS at University of British Columbia. I worked with Michiel van de Panne on Motor Control in physically simulated articulated figures. Summer 2011 and Summer 2013, Google Research: Large scale Deep Learning for video classification. (Tom Dean, Greg Corrado, George Toderici, Sanketh Shetty)
My main research interests are in Machine Learning and my preferred application domain is Vision. I like my data large, my algorithms simple, and my labels weak. I maintain a mostly academic blog for fun. I wish all researchers had one.

iPhone app (Objective C). Made over $20,000 on this so far :). I've also ported it to an Android app (phew!)
- Also, I recently released a 2-4 player iPad game called Loud Snakes. - I also hacked on a photo sharing iPhone app but turns out I underestimated the amount of work necessary :)

- My Speedcubing page. This now averages about ~1200 views/day, I'm happy that people find it useful when learning to cube.
