Just to make sure I am who you think I am 

I attended the International School of Brussels for high school.

In 1996 I graduated from UC San Diego where I earned a BS in Computer Science.

I worked on DB2 for a year for IBM at their Santa Teresa Labs facility in San Jose, CA.

I earned my MS in Computer Science at the University of Rochester in 1998 and my PhD in 2003.  My advisor was Robert Jacobs, and my dissertation was Developing Vision (download here).

From 2003-2005 I did a postdoc with Sue Becker at McMaster University, building a spiking neuron model of tinnitus.

From 2005-2009 I lived in Illinois.

I now live in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
