About Me

without comments

I am a student at the University of Guelph, Canada. I’m in my third year of study toward a PhD at the School of Computer Science (SoCS). My thesis project is an application of signal processing and machine learning as a means to predict and correct error at the very last step of base-calling in the capillary electrophoresis sequencing pipeline. I’m fortunate that my research can make use of the copious DNA barcode data curated by Barcode of Life Datasystems. I’m also tackling a few machine learning problems involving image segmentation, occlusion imputing, and QSAR chemistry. I find part-time employment at the School of Environmental Science as a Java developer for soil CT-scan analysis and person at which math is thrown.
