Zachary Cook

Senior Honours Undergraduate Student

My work deals with software interfaces for multitouch surfaces. I am currently a student of the BSc. Honours Computing Science Co-op program at UOIT, on track to graduate in the spring of 2014. From May 2012 to September 2013, I was the SurfNet intern in the vialab at UOIT under the supervision of Dr. Mark Hancock and Dr. Christopher Collins.
