Research project title: 
Towards Semantically Augmented Deep Learning for Mobile Robots
Research project: 

The aim of this project is to enhance the capabilities of robotic systems utilising and learning from semantic level information.

Currently, work is being undertaken to create a video dataset of hazardous events during driving, with the goal of training a deep learning based system that can pass a standard UK Hazard Perception Test .

About me: 

I'm currently a first year PhD student supervised by Dr. Sen Wang at the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics. I hold a BEng (Hons) First Class in Robotics, Autonomous and Interactive Systems for a dissertation in biologically inspired swarm robotics. In addition to this, I hold an MScR with Distinction for a dissertation on semantic learning for self-driving cars. Both degrees were given by Heriot-Watt University.

Prior to the CDT, I interned at a wearable sports tech startup, Sansible , focusing on prototype engineering. More recently, I interned at Robotical, an Edinburgh based educational robotics startup, working on projects further developing Marty the Robot.
