I lead the Machine Learning Research Group at the University of Guelph. I am interested in statistical machine learning and biologically-inspired computer vision, with an emphasis on deep learning and time series analysis.

Brief Biography

I received received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in 2009, where I was advised by Geoffrey Hinton and Sam Roweis. I spent two years as a postdoc at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University working with Chris Bregler, Rob Fergus, and Yann LeCun. In 2012, I joined the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph as an Assistant Professor.
