Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada, I am currently a Research Staff Member at IBM. Previously, I was a Research Fellow with the MERS group at MIT's CSAIL in the area of Automated Planning (a sub-field of Artificial Intelligence), and was also a Research Fellow for two years at the University of Melbourne in the Agentlab group. I completed my Master's and PhD at the University of Toronto, and my Undergraduate Degree at Carleton University in Ottawa.
