University of Waterloo

Ken M. Nsiempba


I was born and raised in the greater Montreal area and am currently pursuing my PhD studies at the University of Waterloo in the Systems Design Engineering department. I completed my undergraduate degree at McGill University and obtained my master’s degree from the University of Waterloo in Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering. I started my PhD after working in the industry for three years.

Research interests
As a trained mechanical engineer, I have cultivated proficiency in computational design. This, in turn, lead me to delve into the realm of computer vision. My research field is computer vision for sports analytics. Mainly, I teach computers how to interpret ice hockey games events by improving player tracking, action recognition and play detection.
