    In the Fall of 2002, I completed my MCS degree, having worked for some time with Dr. Colin Ware and UNB's Human-Computer Interaction research group. My thesis work involved the study of human pedagogical gestures. An experiment was conducted to capture such gestures so that they might be examined and categorized. 2-D animations were then created to "play back" these gestures in various ways. Follow-up experiments were used to evaluate the animations and compare those based on human gestures to their non-human counterparts.

    Aside from my academic endeavors, I have gained some "hands-on" experience in industry. Most recently, (May 1999 - May 2000), I was a Systems Developer with the Information Technology Department of the New Brunswick Research & Productivity Council (RPC). RPC is a contract research laboratory and technical services company, providing clients with a variety of analytical and technical services. During my year at RPC, the IT department was focused on building an e-business consulting team. I worked on various different projects at RPC, including a substantial Java development project, where I served as the lead GUI designer and developer.
