Michael is an associate professor in Computing Science at King’s. He received his PhD from the University of Saskatchewan in Computing Science as well as a Masters of Science in Computer and Information Science from Guelph University, and a B.Sc. in Computers and Physics from Brock University. His research interests include virtual camera selection using SCSPs (semi-ring constraint satisfaction problems), serious game modules, and camera trap image processing. 

Research interests

I am researching virtual camera selection in virtual worlds, serious game modules, and camera trap image processing.
