I grew up in Georgetown, Ontario and spent most of my teenage years playing competitive football and rugby. I then attended the University of Guelph where I spent four years studying physics and two years playing varsity football. Afterwards I took a trip down the road to McMaster University for graduate school. I plan to continue research after my Ph.D., and am excited about the opportunity to live abroad.
My real interest in physics stems from a lifelong curiosity and the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics. My first love is solving problems, and studying physics offers an embarrassment of riches as far as problems go. If you are interested in my specific research interests follow this link.
In my spare time I enjoy: seeing live music, watching movies, going to the theatre, reading, and exploring cities (see academic map). I also enjoy playing sports such as squash, basketball, soccer, and rugby. I also have a few more amateur interests outside of physics such as city planning, transit design, and analytics in both hockey and basketball.
