Thanks for your interest in my research and in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. There are a number of faculty at the University of Waterloo with similar interests, so even if I am not able to accept you, you may have an opportunity to study here with someone else, so please do not hesitate to apply online.
I am very sorry, but due to the number of requests I get from students to personally evaluate their background and suitability for graduate studies at Waterloo, I am unable to handle these types of requests. The only way to find out if you will be accepted is to apply. Note that I am not on the admissions committee.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are interested in my research area, please make sure to select "Systems and Networking" as one of your subplans when you fill out the application.
Good luck with your application,
