### Brief Bio

Prior to joining the University of Ottawa, I worked at Rotman Research, Baycrest,
and the University of Toronto, where I worked with
Stephen Strother,
Rich Zemel and
Geoffrey Hinton
applying statistics and machine learning to medical images and other "wide" data sets.
From February 2004 to January 2007,
I was a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at Macquarie University,
and before that a lecturer at the
University of Warwick (U.K.).
In 2001, I finished a doctorate under the supervision of
Tudor Ratiu
at the
Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne.
A lot of my research has been in geometric mechanics, a field in which
modern differential geometry is used to study classical mechanical
problems. My main collaborators in this field have been
Cristina Stoica,
Mark Roberts and
Darryl Holm.
