Profile

Biography

I am currently working as a computer vision research officer in the UK-EPSRC National Centre for Nuclear Robotics and simultaneously pursuing a part-time MSD in CSEE, University of Essex. My experience lies with computer vision, deep learning, robotics, embedded systems design, control systems, power electronics and machine learning. My work exploring computer vision and embedded systems for autonomous robotics has been published and presented at several notable conferences and journals, and I have won several innovation awards, over the past few years. Parallel to my enthusiasm for technology, I love playing badminton and have represented my allegiances on various platforms.
