About Me

Hello world! I am a theoretical computer scientist and PhD candidate in the School of Computing at Queen’s University working with Kai Salomaa. I am a member of the Formal Languages and Automata Theory group. If you would like to learn more about me, please read my biography or my CV.


My primary research interests include formal languages and automata theory (particularly in two dimensions), combinatorics on words (particularly in two dimensions), analysis of algorithms, coding/information theory, and computability and complexity. I have secondary interests in integer sequences and computer typesetting.

I have a complete list of my publications and a list of presentations and seminars I have given.


I am a teaching assistant for the following course in the Fall 2019 term:

I maintain links to past course websites and a teaching portfolio with more details about my teaching experience.
