I finished my PhD at McMaster University in April, 2016. My research involves experiments that can be used to identify which defect is limiting the efficiency of a solar cell.

My hobbies include music, electronics, skateboarding, and art. I currently play in the band stereography and have produced recordings of songs that I have written with friends over the years.
