Visualization of Quasicrystals
Honors Research Project for Prof. J. Patera at Centre de Recherches
- Explored the computer science applications of algorithms
for generating aperiodic tilings from cut-and-project quasicrytals.
Genetic Algorithms for Geometric Primitive
Pattern Recognition Project with Youenn Fablet at McGill University,
- Developed an innovative genetic algorithm, featuring adaptive
genetic operators, capable of turning any black and white figure
into a cubist-style painting.
Automatic Writing: The Poetry of Stochastic
Pattern Recognition Presentation at McGill University, Montreal.
- Presented how computers may generate poetic texts through
the use of stochastic grammars and Markov chains.
Visualization in Number Theory
Number Theory Project for Prof. Zaharescu at McGill University,
- Constructed programs in Mathematica for visually identifying
the structure of sequences in analytic number theory.
Review of Polygon Morphing Techniques
Algorithms Research Seminar presented at McGill University, Montreal.
- Investigated algorithms for polygon morphing, a key technique
of computer animation, where the aim is to smoothly and continuously
transform one polygon into another in a way that appears graceful
to the eye.
A Virtual Stained Glass Workshop
Computational Geometry Project at McGill University, Montreal.
- Designed an original algorithm that uses fractal Voronoi
diagrams for nonphotorealistic image rendering effects.
Visual Simulation of Fire
Computer Graphics Project with Andrew Sacamano at McGill University,
- Programmed, using C on a 25MHz Macintosh, a real-time animation
of a candle flame.
The Significance of NP-Completeness to
Advanced Analysis of Algorithms Presentation at McGill
- Outlined how advances in complex systems theory link the
basic questions of simulation and prediction in physics to theoretical
The Transition from Discreet to Continuous
States in the Game of Life
Concurrent Programming Languages Project at McGill
- Examined a model of cellular automata with real-valued cell
A Vision of Logic
Montreal Regional Science Fair Project received Concordia
University Electrical and Computer Engineering Achievement Award
as well as Silver Medal.
- Created educational HyperCard software for exploring formal
logic through puzzles, combinatorial circuits, and cellular automata
systems that evolve according to boolean functions.
