Forest Anderson
I'm a 4th (6th) year computer science student at Carleton University, with honours in Game Development. I have done research at Carleton in the field of image processing. Some topics I'm interested in include game development, graphics, and security.

Currently, I'm a member of the Rust Gamedev Working group. I also co-host the Rust Gamedev Podcast, and run a monthly Rust Gamedev Meetup.

I co-lead the Lame Jam, a game jam at Carleton University. I co-lead Hack All The Things, an Ottawa-based security competition. I was an executive member of the Carleton Computer Science Society for four years.
