About me

I joined the CDT because… I want to develop revolutionary novel farming technology based on new principles of agriculture.  

My favourite thing about the CDT is… Access to agricultural robotic testing facilities. 

 My favourite thing about Lincoln/What I am most looking forward to in coming to Lincoln is… Change of pace from London to a rural countryside setting. 

The University where I am going to study my PhD is…  Lincoln 

I am looking forward to going there because… I get continued access to the Riseholme site to test my creations. 

My career goal is to… Start a world leading agricultural robotics company. 

 The areas of agri-food robotics I am most interest in are… Full stack. Farm to fork. Creating new robotic agricultural systems.  

In my spare time I enjoy… Music, computer games, fitness. 

A fun fact about me is… I have 540 degrees of rotation through my wrist due to joint hyper mobility.
