EXPERIENCE
Software Developer May – Aug 2017 London, ON, Canada
Mutual Concept Computer Group
– Configured a reporting server for LDAP authentication
– Migrated existing reports to the reporting server using open source reporting tools, which required
writing basic SQL scripts
– Developed prototypes of advanced reporting features such as executing Java code within a report
and OLAP views
– Developed an auto insurance pink slip prototype to be used in web apps, using Java

Research Associate Sept – Dec 2016 Waterloo, ON, Canada


Perimeter Institute
– Ran simulations of fast radio bursts as they would be observed by CHIME, a radio telescope
– Used Python to properly format the simulated data in binary so it could be used with SIGPROC, a
software package that searches for fast radio bursts in radio astronomy data
– Used Python to plot and display the useful information from SIGPROC’s output
– Tested the efficiency and accuracy of SIGPROC, and determined it is far too slow for our purposes

Research Assistant Sept 2015 – Apr 2016 Sudbury, ON, Canada


SNOLAB
– Used C++ to analyze simulated data of background events within SNO+, an underground neutrino
detector, in order to identify background events
– Wrote a Python script to monitor and analyze data from fluid level sensors, identifying a leak in the
experiment
– Tested the experiment’s calibration hardware to determine its accuracy and improve its design
– Assisted with hands-on projects in the underground laboratory

Product Engineer Jan – Apr 2015 Kitchener, ON, Canada
