Hi, I'm Eddy.

I'm uniquely experienced in transit planning and software engineering.


I'm a recent Computer Science graduate from the University of Waterloo with a passion for transit. I have experience making big data and experimentation more accessible at Yelp and RideCo having worked on such internal tools on their software engineering teams.

As a Transit Planner at Metrolinx and the TTC I developed metrics and tools that helped planners gain more context and insights into route crowding, performance, and connectivity, many of which continue to be used and maintained. I presented some of my work at TransitData 2020, which you can see below.
