Age: 26

I graduated with a BEng (Hons.) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Southampton in 2011. During my time in Southampton, I have conducted research on controlling a bicycle using reinforcement learning as a summer intern under Prof. Mahesan Niranjan. I have also delved into using computer vision in stitching 3D structures as my final year project under supervision of Prof. Mark Nixon. Apart from that, I have worked in the industry as a Product Development Engineer for Electron Dynamics Ltd. I joined the University of Exeter as a KTP Associate (Developer) in February, 2012. Currently, working with Prof. Richard Everson and Dr Jonathan Fieldsend, I am developing energy efficient mesh network system for the IMC Group Ltd.

Research interests: My main research area is Multi-objective Optimisation Using Evolutionary Algorithms (MOEA). Alongside, I have a keen interest in Neuroinformatics, Reinforcement Learning and Autonomous Systems. Apart from that, I enjoy electronics and embedded system design.
