About me

Prior to joining the CDT, I had spent over two decades in the heavy manufacturing industry working in a variety of roles. My career started through a vocational route with a focus on production engineering. I then transitioned across to manufacturing and mechanical engineering which involved developing and implementing new processes for automation. Seeing the changes that have taken place over this time with the deployment of robotics has been fascinating.

I decided to explore this field further and changed career trajectory and recently graduated with a degree in Computer Science from the University of Lincoln. I am especially excited about exploring robotics and autonomous systems in the unstructured and complex environment that agriculture presents. This is a challenging domain and I really look forward to positively contributing to it.

I will be completing my PhD research at the University of Cambridge, and I am excited to join the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) in the Industrial Resilience Research Group (IRRG).
