About me

I am originally from South London and have been in Lincoln for 6 years now.

Before joining the CDT, I worked as a research assistant in the area of in-field logistics for soft-fruit picking, where I worked to upgrade and extend facilities for task management, route coordination, user interfacing, and robot communications. My main areas of interest are in fleet routing and task management, so this was a fun workspace to experiment with new ideas.

I also have interests in other fields such as virtual reality which I have been exploring in other projects. I hope to bring aspects of what I have learnt in these to my PHD.
