Joshua Himmens

My name is Joshua Himmens. I am an undergraduate engineering physics student at the University of British Columbia, deeply passionate about the intersection of deep learning, embedded systems, and quantum computing. I am currently an ATLAS Deep Learning Research Student at TRIUMF, Canada’s Particle Accelerator Centre, where I work on developing advanced machine learning techniques for energy reconstruction in the ATLAS experiment.

In addition to my research at TRIUMF, I lead the Command and Data Handling (CDH) team for the UBC Orbit Satellite Design Team. We are currently developing a CubeSat as a part of ESA’s Fly Your Satellite! program, which will be launched in 2025. Our satellite, ALEASAT, will serve to aid the amateur radio community in developing radio-based imagery as a tool for disaster relief.

I am also active in the University, serving as a curriculum and advocacy director for the Engineering Undergraduate Society and a member of the AMS advocacy committee.
