Robotics / Mechatronics Engineer



I am a Robotics Engineer at Emesent, where I am currently working on autonomous robots for inspection, surveying and mapping which operate in inaccessible, unstructured, dirty and dangerous environments. My work spans the whole stack of perception, planning and control.

My main interests lie in robotics and control. In particular, I enjoy bringing rigorous mathematical and physical tools to making robots more safe, agile and capable. This includes non-linear system theory, optimisation and numerical optimal control, differential geometry, etc.But I enjoy a wide variety of problems from all domains of robotics and beyond.
