Alex Lao

I am a Computer Engineering B.Eng. and M.A.Sc graduate from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. My focus is in FPGA development, electrical design, firmware development, and software development. In the past I have worked on the design of race cars, machinery, integrated circuits, robotics and spacecraft. I try to approach similar problems between my hobbies and professional work in different ways to explore the differences between the quick and dirty approach to design and prototyping where components are pushed beyond their limits in hobbies verses the careful and methodical analysis of designs in professional engineering.
