A Short Biography

A scary picture of Stephen

Stephen B. Jenkins left high school before graduating to pursue a short and rather unsuccessful career as a professional musician. Returning to school, he graduated 'with distinction' from Algonquin College in 1981 with a diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology. He joined the Unsteady Aerodynamics Laboratory of the National Research Council of Canada, where he worked on the development of real-time instrumentation and software systems for dynamic wind tunnel experiments, particularly in the non-linear flight regime. In 1996 the Institute for Aerospace Research was re-organized, and he became a member of the Software and Instrumentation Group at the Montreal Road Facilities of the Aerodynamics Laboratory, where he is currently employed as their senior programmer/analyst. His primary area of responsibility is the development of new software systems for the Laboratory's wind tunnels.

Steve is an avid Perl and Unix hacker and is a strong supporter of open-source software and open standards. In his spare time he enjoys motorcycling and playing the piano.

On the net, he often goes by the nickname Erudil.
