About me

I joined the AgriFoRwArdS CDT because I am a very keen to research and develop Robotic technologies as I believe these can really help reduce the problems that arise in spaces in labour intensive roles. Agricultural technologies are particularly interesting due to the complexity of the tasks that arise due to the vast landscape, crops, and weather conditions. It is such a vital field as communities depend on regular farming for their sustenance, so technologies that allow this to be more efficient and consistent can also mean that this type of sustenance has the potential to become more affordable for everyone without compromising, maybe even improving, the quality.

I’m eager to apply my knowledge at Lincoln and engage with cutting-edge technologies. I intend for my PhD research to delve into fleet mobile robotics, aiming to enhance farm health and efficiencies. In my free time, I’m an avid web tech enthusiast, an archery enthusiast, a gamer, and a music lover. Plus, I’m a third-culture kid—guess where I’m from!
