I am a Robotics Research Associate at the University of Oxford focusing on optimal planning and control of high degree of freedom systems interacting with environments working with Dr. Ioannis Havoutis. I currently work in the context of the EU Horizon 2020 project Memory of Motion (MEMMO) and the Offshore Robotics for Certification of Assets (ORCA) Hub.

I completed a PhD in Robotics and Autonomous Systems supervised by Prof. Sethu Vijayakumar at the University of Edinburgh, where I was a core member of the humanoids research group working on the Edinburgh-NASA Valkyrie project. Previously, I completed a MSc by Research (Distinction) in Robotics and Autonomous Systems and a BEng (Honours, 1st Class) in Mechanical Engineering with Management.

I am passionate about solving hard problems with innovative, entrepreneurial approaches. I am a graduate of Singularity University’s Graduate Studies Programme, went through a startup accelerator, and mentor at entrepreneurship events. I have developed and deployed software for NGOs, education, marketing, and entertainment with many household brand names.
