Graduated from Queen's University with a BASc in Electrical engineering in Canada. Currently a Software Analyst for Thales Transportation where I primarily fix defects and implement enhancement for the Onboard Controller Unit that goes into mass transit vehicles. Primarily work with C++ and C. Qt and MATLAB experience - utilized these two developer environments to create a predictor of Neutropenia (white blood cell loss) in Breast Cancer Patients. Wrote a journal article published in The Open BioInformatics Journal: The Open Bioinformatics Journal 01/2014; 8(1):16-21. DOI: 10.2174/1875036201408010016 Arduino Experience: Autonmous robot, and temperature monitor for a battery powered snowmobile Socket programming/Mobile Experience - developed niche videoconferencing platform for Windows 8.1 and Android.

Software Analyst

May 2015

- Analyze software to fix defects and implements enhancements for driver display of mass transit vehicles and vehicle on board controller. - Primarily work in C and C++. - Rigorously test software implementations to verify it meets functional requirements.

Lead Electrical Specialist

Oct 2013 - Apr 2014 (6 months)

• Designed and implemented the electrical system of a battery powered snowmobile in a team of 35 students to compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers Clean Snowmobile Challenge, team placed third in competition. • Programmed Arduino Microcontroller in C to monitor battery stack temperature of snowmobile and to initiate shut down circuit in instances temperature rises above threshold. • Wired electrical system, executed bench test procedures using multimeters and oscilloscopes and configured motor controller software for operation. • Prepared documentation for SAE’s review on electrical system’s safety compliance. • Trained younger electrical students and non-electrical students in electrical software and concepts. • Assigned tasks to younger electrical students based on competency and interest.

Student Researcher

Oct 2013 - Apr 2014 (6 months)

• Coded data mining script that analyzes Breast Cancer Patient data to predict white blood cell loss using MATLAB. • Identified key pre-chemotherapy characteristics combinations that resulted in high prediction accuracy of data mining algorithms. • Prepared journal article, S. Lawal, M.J. Korenberg, N. Pittman, M. Mates “Predicting Neutropenia Risk in Breast Cancer Patients from Pre-Chemotherapy Characteristics”, The Open BioInformatics Journal, vol. 8, pp. 16-21, 2014.

IT Support Technician

May 2012 - Sep 2013 (1 year)

• Tested, troubleshoot and verified all phone connections and IP based wired and wireless connections in Queen’s Residences on schedule for oncoming school year using Fluke Network equipment • Resolved desktop and internet issues for employees and guests of Queen’s Hospitality and Services and first year students. • Installed and configured Windows workstations and CISCO network switches.
