Teaching Assistant
Sep 2013 - Dec 2013

Tutored students in advanced human computer interaction concepts and techniques/technologies for next generation interfaces for mobile phones, tablets and gesture-based systems. Also taught Windows Phone, Microsoft Kinect and Phidgets to enable students to design unique interactions.

Interaction Design and Software Development Intern
May 2013 – Sep 2013

Based upon prior work done during my MSc. projects in interactions with medical software, as a team with another developer, we created new interactions for exploring medical data that that utilized an iPad, in conjunction with Calgary Scientific Inc’s existing suite of medical software, specifically ResolutionMD.

Graduate Research Assistant
May 2011 - May 2013

Performed research for a variety of industrial partners in domains such as oil and gas, medical, agriculture, emergency response planning and GIS. The research was focused on user experience and how to incorporate cutting -edge technologies (e.g. Microsoft Surface, Microsoft Kinect, Ultra-High Resolution Wall Displays) into industrial workflows. I examined interactions and built several unique prototypes for this research.

Teaching Assistant
Sep 2012 – Dec 2012

Tutoring students in human computer interaction basics, from user-centered design, sketching, prototyping and interface design to formal evaluation of interfaces using heuristics. Also taught C#, WPF and Expression Blend for students to design highly aesthetic and intuitive interfaces.

Interaction Design and Software Development Intern
May 2010 – April 2011

Collaborated as a part of a cross-Canadian team of agile developers to assist researchers across the Surfnet Research Group. SurfNet is Canada’s largest Research Network and focuses in several areas, particularly multi- touch/tabletop research. The projects I worked on include development on a universal gesture platform for multi-touch tabletops, interaction prototyping tools, as well as an interactive multi-touch visualization library (in WPF) for the University of Calgary’s Taylor Family Digital library.

2011 - 2013
Masters of Science in Computer Science

Thesis:
"Examining User Experience in Multi-Surface Environments"
Examined how users interact with each other in environments that contain a variety of devices (e.g. tabletops, wall displays, tablets, mobile phones) through several qualitative studies. This lead to a set of gesture themes and guidelines for designing natural user experiences in these environments. Additionally, part of my graduate work involved the creation of an API with a co-researcher, to facilitate developers in rapidly creating fully immersive user experiences in multi-surface environments/applications.
Courses: Information Visualization, Collaborative Computing, Web-based Systems, Agile Software Engineering

2007 - 2011
Bachelors of Science
