I am a Professor in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I received my PhD in 1990 from the University of Waterloo and at that time joined the faculty at the University of Alberta. Ten years later I returned to Waterloo. My research interests span the field of Artificial Intelligence with a focus on representation and reasoning, constraint programming, constraint satisfaction, and applied machine learning. I have co-authored six research papers which have won awards, and I have served on the program committees of many conferences and on the editorial boards of several journals. From 2005-2009, I served as Editor-in-Chief of the journal Constraints, a forum for research in constraint programming and constraint satisfaction and optimization. In 2008, I was named a Fellow of the Association for Artificial Intelligence.

Handbook of CP

The aim of this handbook is to capture the full breadth and depth of the constraint programming field and to be encyclopedic in its scope and coverage.
