Background:

I have completed my BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of East London in 2012 and my MSc in Advanced Control and Systems Engineering at the University of Manchester in 2013. I went on to pursue a PhD in Control and Guidance of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicles at Cranfield University in 2014. Upon completion of my PhD, I have joined the University of Sheffield as a postdoctoral researcher in Robotics and Machine Imaging.

My main research interests are within the fields of robotics, dynamic modelling, and motion control.
