When he’s really lucky they even let him play, too. He has 15 years’ software engineering experience as a developer, architect, and project lead.

Dean has worked on ground breaking projects spanning a myriad of industries and problems. His seminal paper Real Time Location System using Passive UHF RFID published in IEEE in April, 2014 makes him an internationally renowned leader in RFID technology. In addition he lead the RFID Application Development Lab for Applied Research and Innovation Services at SAIT during its major Cattle RFID project. Later his work with FGL Sports and Canadian Tire saw him construct massive retail applications using RFID technology.He has built systems that leverage tracking solutions in several mediums, massive data analytic engines, distributed systems, big data, machine learning, augmented reality, and tangible interactive technology to name a few. If it can be thought of, likely Dean is the man to get it done.

Bill Klasky

VP Sales & Marketing

Bill comes to Nu-Worx with over 25 years of business, marketing and sales experience. Opening his first business in the early 80’s and selling it to his competition.

With numerous published articles in both scientific and trade journals and presented at national and international conferences as a keynote speaker on such topics as customer experience management (CEM) best practices, implications of Big Data for CEM and selecting the right loyalty metric.

Juniper Willard

Senior Embedded Engineer

Juniper Willard has acquired in excess of a decade of professional experience in hardware and software in a wide array of industries, and is registered as a Professional Engineer with APEGS. He is currently engaged in designing control systems for a particle accelerator.

One such project involved creating a power budget and designing power conversion for the backplane of a telecommunication switching module. While creating a system capable of withstanding loads up to 200% of maximum and temperatures up to 80℃, costs were reduced by $15.00 per unit, for a total savings exceeding $1,500,000 annually.

Another project involved creating a multi-threaded embedded testjig for power management, configuration, and testing during manufacturing. This required simultaneous communication with eight devices via bit-banged SPI while monitoring conditions and relaying commands from a server, and maintaining the degree of reliability that a manufacturing environment requires.

A final example would be the efforts for the compensation controls for an insertion device. This is the most complex insertion device of its type attempted, and possesses three degrees of freedom, which necessitated the creation of three-dimensional calibration tables and trilinear interpolation routines. In addition, the online mathematical modeling routines required parallelisation which was accomplished with independent iterators over integration, and decreased calculation time in excess of 400%.

Jason Cripps

Graphics/Artisan

Jason is a man of many talents and yet can easily be described by a single word, artisan. Jason is a builder, an artist, a craftsman, a poet, and a leader. His early career saw him working as a graphic artist and game developer for companies like Bio-Ware where he designed and developed new characters we all loved.

He is an expert in the construction industry, building new houses and designing new and custom solutions for clients. He crafts jewellery and other such pieces. He’s worked in mediums ranging from crystal, glass, bronze, copper, gold, silver to steel fabrication. He custom Viking suits of armour are each a work of art, yet battle ready.

Merging his digital and physical abilities, Jason has moved into tangible design using rapid prototyping tools such as injection moulding and 3D printers.
