Curriculum Vitae

My professional experience is in the mainly in the area of software design and engineering (Microsoft), where I get to work on super cool top-secret projects and change the world! I also have broad prior engineering experience, including fuel cell R&D (Ballard Power), truck/rail APUs and heaters (Teleflex Power), military and medical batteries (EaglePicher Energy) and elevators and escalators (Mitsubishi Electric).

I completed my MASc in Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada, where my research focused on wireless communications, body area networks, personal sensor networks, sensor node localization, pervasive and context-aware systems. Prior to graduate school, I completed my BASc in Mechanical Engineering (Mechatronics), also at UBC.

I am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) in Windows 2000, and have my Toastmasters ‘Competent Communicator’ (CC) designation.

Goofing Off..

When not making progress on my research, I frequently spend time creating and maintaining web pages for family and friends. Here is a selection:

 

Lo Family Website – one of the oldest websites created by me, still online and in-use today.

 

Ming’s Gallery – website for my mom to display her fabulous paintings, now in its third iteration.

 

WiNMoS – website for my graduate studies research group, designed to UBC guidelines and ECE department hosting limitations.

 

Two Auto Cents – automotive blog created and based on a WordPress template with my friend Alex.
