Joel is smart, curious, creative and skilled.
His research skills are first-rate, and he takes obvious pleasure
in solving worthy problems in novel ways. I hired Joel to work
with me for a simple reason: I love working with highly intelligent,
motivated and capable people who can get the job done.
For two years, Joel has been one of the lead developers in
my data science lab – NetLab – at the University of Waterloo. In the
time that I have known him, Joel has continually exceeded my expectations
for any undergraduate or graduate student. I recommend him without any hesitation.
Joel is one of the most intelligent and diligent students I have had the pleasure of mentoring.
He quickly grasps complex ideas, demonstrates great facility with statistics,
and never takes the easy way out. He would be an immense asset to any team or organization.
