About Me

Hello world! I am a theoretical computer scientist and PhD student 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 maintain a complete list of my publications with bibliographic details and links.

I also have a list of presentations and seminars I have given.


I am not teaching or assisting with any courses in the Summer 2018 term.

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