Alistair Boyle : Biography


Dr. Alistair Boyle received a BSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering (2002, University of Calgary), an MASc in Biomedical Engineering (2010, Carleton University), and PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering (2016, Carleton University). His thesis research focused on biomedical and geophysical imaging systems for long-term monitoring. He worked for 17 years, at Nortel, Seaway Networks, Freescale Semiconductors, and Diablo Technologies designing high speed cryptography, pattern matching, data processing and memory storage into integrated circuits alongside PowerPC and ARM processors, has written firmware and application software, and has extensive experience in the electronics labs (PCB design, FPGA design, signal integrity) at gigahertz frequencies. He has taught at Carleton University. Most recently, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa where he was using machine learning to investigate the fusion of highly correlated time series data to improve the diagnoses of central nervous system disorders, quantify deficiencies in non-sport specific movements to help prevent injuries and personalize training, and developing systems for low-cost marker-less motion capture for "out of the lab" quantitative biomechanics in the workplace or out in the field.
