About me

My name is Jake, I have lived in the Lincolnshire area for the past 10 years and have recently completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at the University of Lincoln.

I was introduced to the field of robotics through a summer project with LCAS at the University where I worked with the Tiago robot on a door opening problem that involved computer vision and manipulation. For my dissertation I went on to integrate a fleet management system with some Turtlebots and develop a web interface to interact with them.

I joined the CDT because I wanted to explore my interest in this field of study more and I believe that robotics can provide valuable solutions to the many interesting problems from the agricultural sector.
