research

I am a graduate student in the DCS Theory Group at the University of Toronto, where I am lucky to be supervised by Stephen Cook and Toni Pitassi. My current research interests lie in different aspects of computational complexity theory. I also have an interest in the intersection of computer science and cognitive science (my primary collaboraters here are Tarek Besold and Todd Wareham). My last project in this area saw the application of concepts in computational complexity to models of metaphor and concept re-representation.

misc

Outside of math and computers, my favorite hobbies are rock climbing and writing. When it's cold, I climb indoors at Joe Rockheads, where I have met some of the best people. I love improv --- I am a former Stanley, and I was a trainer with the Canadian Improv Games for several years --- and I still try and get out to jam every now and then. I also maintain a website with three other idiots.
