I received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in
Engineering at the
University of Calgary
in 1976 and 1978, respectively. At the time of graduation in 1976,
Pierre Trudeau was completing his third term as Canada's
Prime Minister, Gerald Ford was President of the United States,

From the time of graduation until July 1998, I have had the pleasure
of working alongside
Dr. Len Bruton
as his full-time Research Assistant.
We have together carried out research in M-D and 1-D signal
processing here at the
University of Calgary (1979-1983, 1985-1998), and for two years
in the Department of
Electrical Engineering at the
University of Victoria
(1984-1985). The research has led to a book chapter and more than 30 refereed
journal and conference papers, listed
Our shared research interests include:
- multidimensional circuits and systems theory applied to image processing;
- hardware and software implementations of high-speed DSP algorithms.
I am currently a Senior Instructor
in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
My primary responsibilities in this position are teaching at
the undergraduate level.
I am also Undergraduate Program Director
for Electrical and Computer Engineering.
This keeps me very busy, so unfortunately, I
am no longer active in research. Consequently, I am unable to take on
any graduate students.
And just for fun ...
