He graduated from Queen's University in May 2002 with a B.Sc.H. in Computing & Information Science, before moving to Toronto. 

There, he completed his M.Sc. in Computer Science at the University of Toronto in September 2004.

In 2010, he completed his Ph.D. in the Dynamic Graphics Project group at the University of Toronto.

Research Interests

He has general interests in graphics, vision and artificial intelligence. He is especially interested in the simulation and reconstruction of natural phenomenon. Within computer vision, he is interested in stereo vision,  refractive or specular 3D reconstruction and image processing.
