About me

I joined the CDT for the opportunity to get exposure to real-world applications of robotics. I’m looking forward to getting to work alongside industry partners to get a better understanding of a problem from the initial concept all the way to the end goal/product.

I studied at the University of Lincoln for my undergraduate degree and I enjoyed it so much here I decided to stay; my favourite aspect of Lincoln is the amount of green spaces there are around the city. 

MSc Project

AI cleaning of unstructured data for application in models trained on lab derived and clean datasets

From an image of the ground featuring seeds and some freshly germinated weeds, remove noise, areas of non-interest, and segment areas of interest. The cleaned images are intended for use on a weed seed classifier as part of my PhD project.

PhD Project
