The interlaced cartouches represent the armiger's interest in math and science, as it resembles a set of hyperbolic links (topology) and old depictions of electron orbitals. This interest is further reflected in the motto,"Through Number And Measure", a quotation of Rene Descartes. The shears are canting of the armiger's last name. The nowed annulet of rope being "cut" by said shears is a reference to the legend of the Gordian Knot, and a vague nod to the interlaced symbol on the escutcheon.
Blazon: A rope annulo nowed in chief Azure interlaced with shears in chevron Proper.
