I am an Associate Professor and I work on sensing systems, with applications from wildlife tracking to indoor robotics to checking that bridges are safe. I work in the cyberphysical systems group. I design novel sensors, investigate new algorithms (increasingly deep and reinforcement learning based) and apply these innovations to solving new problems. Previously I was an EPSRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, working on the UnderTracker project. I am investigating how to localize people, animals and objects in environments where technologies like GPS fail, such as underground or indoors. Key to this is the use of magneto-inductive tracking and communication. My work is typically cross-disciplinary and I colloborate with colleagues from a wide range of disciplines. I obtained my PhD from the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 2008 researching the design and implementation of a wildlife tracking system, using heterogeneous wireless sensor networks.
Some of my work has neatly been summarized in the following OxfordSparks animation.
