About Me:

I am currently a Software Engineer with the Marine Autonomous Robotics Group at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton. My major interest is in robots for science and robots for search and rescue - especially flying ones. My pipe-dream is to work on Cool Robot Stuff such that the robots have greater autonomy, making smarter decisions by themselves, reducing the amount of work that their human operators and colleagues have to put in. Currently, I am working with Underwater Glider robotics platforms.

Outside of academia I enjoy taking pictures of things, saying words purely because they sound nice, hoarding many genres of music, and hedgehogs.
