I’m a Machine Learning researcher turned app developer in Vancouver, Canada. This site is the place to find me if you’re looking, and occasionally a place for me to sound off on work, my life and travels, and my obsession with weird old movies.
- I’m an independent iOS app developer. I’ve previously worked on great iOS photography apps like Color Splash and Juxtaposer. I also worked on the Machine Learning parts of the awesome news aggregator app Zite, which was acquired by Flipboard in 2014.
- My curriculum vitae.
- My PhD thesis and other publications. The subject of my PhD work is Bayesian optimization, with an emphasis on practical AI applications (computer vision, machine-aided animation tools, robotics, etc).
- My blog. Pretty quiet now, but who knows?
- For the past few years I’ve been making something or other to sum up each year of my life and putting it online. Here’s what I did for 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011
- I made a list of personal top 100 movies of all time and also my favourite TV series, albums, books, and films of 2000-2009.
- My wife and I love to travel, mostly in Asia. Most recently, we took a month-long trip to Vietnam. J was six months pregnant at the time. It was fine.
