Derek is responsible for helping customers to succeed with Maple and MapleSim. He has been using Maple since undergrad and used Maple to help develop the analytical models of his Ph.D. thesis.

Derek Wright received a B.A.Sc. degree in electrical engineering and a M.A.Sc. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada. He subsequently received a Ph.D. degree in the collaborative electrical and biomedical engineering program at the University of Toronto, Canada. His research has focused on developing analytical models of phononic crystals and metamaterials that use active materials, such as piezoelectrics and dielectric elastomers, which may lead to controllable dynamic ultrasonic lenses. He has also worked in the areas of robotics, control, analog and digital VLSI and board-level circuit design, and CCD cameras.

Derek is a trained classical pianist and particularly enjoys performing Bach. He also works out daily at the Maplesoft gym and tries to bike to work as often as possible. He regularly reads Scientific American, IEEE Spectrum, and Skeptic magazine. He also enjoys the weekly CBC Quirks and Quarks podcast to catch up on science news. Most of all, Derek enjoys spending time with his wife, Amy, and his son, William.
