Hello world! I am a theoretical computer scientist, assistant professor, and Alley Heaps Associate in the Department of Computer Science at St. Francis Xavier University. I earned my PhD from the School of Computing at Queen’s University, where I worked with Kai Salomaa.

I am teaching the following courses in the Fall 2021 term:
