Biographical Information:

I (Ed Knorr) received my PhD and MSc from the University of British Columbia, under the direction of Raymond Ng. My undergraduate degree (BMath, co-op) came from the University of Waterloo. My former employers are: (a) Westech Information Systems (a spin-off of BC Hydro; afterwards, Westech became part of BC Hydro again, and then it was privatized in 2003, so that computing services are now provided under contract by Accenture); (b) Amoco Canada Petroleum (formerly Dome Petroleum, formerly Hudson's Bay Oil & Gas; Amoco is now part of BP) where I worked from 1979-1989 including my co-op days. I also worked at the Centre for Advanced Studies in IBM's Toronto Laboratory, and at UBC as a Sessional Lecturer.

I'm a tenured Senior Instructor, Computer Science advisor, Chair of the Undergraduate Operations committee, and member of the Computing Support committee. My teaching portfolio includes database systems, data structures, discrete mathematics, engineering computation and design (in C), object-oriented programming (in C++), and in recent years: English (scientific writing and argumentation).
