Brief description of main areas of professional/scholarly activity (technical and research interests, offices held in professional and technical organizations, participation on technical standards development committees, etc.).




Research interests. My research applies the tools of engineering science (especially dynamics and control, and mechanics of materials) to obtain an improved understanding of postural control in humans; the mechanics of slips and falls; osteoporotic fracture of the hip, wrist and spine; and mobility problems in aging. Applied projects focus on the design and testing of wearable hip protectors and energy-absorbing flooring for high risk environments, and the development of wearable sensors for recording in real life of falls, postural stability, and mobility.

Service. In 2004, I was elected and served as Program Chair for the 28th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics in Portland, OR. I also served as co-chair for 3 other conferences since 2001.

Since 2004, I have been a member of the CIHR peer review study section reviewing applications annually for Health Science Salary Awards. I have also served regularly as an ad-hoc reviewer for NSERC, CIHR, CRC, NIH, and CDC. In 2006, I was a reviewer for the Manning Innovation Awards. I also regularly review manuscripts for the Journal of Neurophysiology, Journal of Biomechanics, Clinical Biomechanics, Gait and Posture, Bone, and the Journal of Biomechanical Engineering.



Standards development. I am currently leading efforts to standardize the testing of wearable hip protectors, which are intended to prevent hip fractures in vulnerable elderly in the event of a fall. This work involves interactions with AMSE, SDMA (in the UK), and EMPA (in Switzerland).




15.

Industrial and related experience.




For the past three years, I have been working with a Danish company (Tytex) to develop a wearable padding device for the prevention of hip fractures. We have also developed an accurate test method for evaluating the force attenuating capacity of hip protectors, which we are working to establish as an ASME standard. I have also worked regularly to provide expert opinions in litigation cases, especially involving slips and falls.

Industrial and related experience.




Could you let me know of your consultancies and memberships on company boards and international standards committees,
I did a little consulting for a research project before starting here at SFU. The Principle Investigator for the project was Son Vuong from the C.S. Department at U.B.C. The project had other industrial partners as well, but I worked most closely with Magnetar Games (http://www.magnetargames.com/)
as well as direct experience through employment? 
The most recent are
Senior Software Developer, Marketocracy Inc., Los Altos, California.
Worked “at internet speed” to engineer object-oriented software subsystems behind www.marketocracy.com. This web site was nominated in 2002 for a Webby Award in the category of Best Financial Web Site and also has been featured multiple times as a Forbes "Best of the Web" including one Forbes Favorite. The two-year-old mutual fund made possible by this software beat the S&P 500 index by more than 1,400 basis points in each of 2002 and 2003 while exhibiting only half the risk (as measured by Beta). My specific accomplishments include the design, implementation, testing, integration, deployment, and maintenance of three fault-tolerant applications which allow efficient email communication with Marketocracy's 60,000(+) members. These applications were layered over a large SQL database.
 Senior Software Developer, Noochee Solutions, Inc. (merged with Mindport), Colorado Springs and Boulder, CO.
Worked on the engineering team for Noochee’s SmartMarket product suite. This object-oriented cross-platform suite was awarded Editor's Choice by C@LL CENTER CRM Solutions. Served as a member of Noochee’s software process team. Managed the build-up of the Boulder office which was intended as a “skunkworks” for the company.
Also perhaps relevant are:
 Co-researcher, project sponsored by Nortel Networks entitled “From Use-Case Maps to performance predictions”, developed a tool allowing the performance simulation of graphically entered scenarios.
 Software architect, Alcatel’s Carrier Internetworking Division (formerly Newbridge Networks Corp.), evaluated a new computer language and architectural alternatives for network management software.

Brief description of main areas of professional/scholarly activity (technical and research interests, offices held in professional and technical organizations, participation on technical standards development committees, etc.).




My research projects in the Communication Networks Laboratory at the School of Engineering Science at SFU deal with high-performance packet networks. The projects span the range from measurements, characterisation, and modelling of traffic in high-speed networks, to simulation of call admission and congestion control algorithms, and the application of intelligent control to communication systems. In particular, I am interested in investigating the importance of understanding traffic characteristics in optimising network behaviour and in improving its utilisation.
My research projects in the area of nonlinear systems deal with finding dc operating points, steady state, and transient responses of electronic circuits. They are essential tasks in electrical circuit simulation and involve solving nonlinear differential/algebraic equations.
I am currently Associate Editor, IEEE Transactions on CAS, Part I: Theory and Systems (2004–present); IEEE transactions on CAS, Part II: Nonlinear Circuits and Systems (2002–2003) (Replacement Associate Editor); IEEE Circuits and Systems Magazine (2001–2003); IEEE Transactions on CAS, Part II: Nonlinear Circuits and Systems (1999–2001); IEEE Transactions on CAS, Part I: Fundamental Theory and Applications (1993–1995); Guest Associate Editor: Special Section on Nonlinear Theory and its Applications, IEICE Transactions on Fundamentals of Electronics, Communications and Computer Sciences (2005 and 2004). I am currently President Elect of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. I served as Member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Board of Governors (2004–2005 and 2001–2003): Conferences Division (2000–2005) and Regional Activities Division (2001); Member of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society Board of Governors (2004–2006); Member of the NSERC 2006 Doctoral Prizes in Engineering and Computer Sciences Selection Committee; Member of the NSERC Communications, Computers and Components Grant Selection Committee, GSC 334 (2001–2003); Chair, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society joint Chapter of the Vancouver/Victoria Sections (2001–present). I served as Technical Program Co-Chair, SPECTS 2006; Program Chair, ICMLC 2005; Technical Program Co-Chair, ISCAS 2005; Technical Program Chair and Vice General Chair, ISCAS 2004; Invited Sessions Co-Chair, International Symposium on Circuits and Systems, ISCAS 2003; Special Support Chair, Joint 9th IFSA World Congress and 20th NAFIPS International Conference, NAFIPS 2001; Co-Chair, Technical Program Committee, Track General Circuits and Systems, ISCAS ’99, Publicity Co-Chair, International Symposium on Nonlinear Theory and its Applications, NOLTA ’99. I serve as Conference Advisor, ISCAS 2006; NOLTA 2006 Advisory Committee; MWSCAS Steering Committee (2001–present). I also serve on various conference program committees (ISCAS, GLOBECOM, INFOCOM, ICC, ICNP, WLN, IC, WOC, SMC, MWSCAS, and ICECS).

APPENDIX A
TECHNICAL ELECTIVES
Pre-Approved Technical Electives
Students in the Electronics Engineering option pursuing an Honors degree must take one elective Tech I-3, nominally in Semester 7.

The Technical Elective choice is subject to approval by the Chair of the School's Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC); however, in order to simplify this process and to clarify by example, the list below has been pre-approved. Note that these courses may require prerequisites. Also, in some cases, permission of the department in question must be obtained prior to registration.

The School encourages students to choose their electives so that they complement each other. Taking the appropriate prerequisites, especially in conjunction with science electives, can open up many interesting courses.

The pre-approved technical electives consist of:



  • CMPT 225

  • any 300 or 400 level course in Physics or Chemistry from the list of pre-approved science electives;

  • any 300 or 400 level course in Computing Science except CMPT 320;

  • any 300 or 400 level course in Math except MATH 380;

  • any 300 or 400 level ENSC course,

such courses to have at least 3 credit hours.
