I am a PhD student at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory. I work at the intersection of robotics, artificial intelligence and healthcare to develop assistive technologies for people living with dementia. I also work part-time as a software engineer in the defence industry. Outside of work, I enjoy helping people to get the most out of technology.
