Biography

Hi! I am currently a DPhil (PhD) student with Dr. Maurice Fallon at the University of Oxford as part of the Dynamics Robotics Group at the Oxford Robotics Institute. My research interests include SLAM, place recognition, and object detection, deep learning and 3D geometry.

Previously I interned as computer vision scientist at XYZ Reality woriking on correspondence estimation algorithms. Prior to that I interned as an applied scientist at Amazon Research working on speech synthesis for Alexa. I completed a MSc Artificial Intelligence degree at the University of Edinburgh and I hold a first class honours degree in computing science from the University of Aberdeen. My free time I spend playing volleyball, travelling and skiing.
