Students, Post-doctoral Fellows, and Research Assistants

Note to prospective research students: I am always interested in supervising some highly motivated M.Sc or PhD students with a strong background in computer science and creative skills. An advanced and working knowledge of Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning is certainly an advantage. If you think you fall into that category, do not hesitate to contact me (mylastname"at"sfu.ca).
