I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Glasgow, specialised in Machine Learning, and with a drive to develop entrepreneurship in higher education.
My research focuses on self-calibrating interfaces which allow you to immediately control a device without the device initially knowing how to interpret your actions. Explore this interactive paper for an intuitive walkthrough.
I work part-time and enjoy being a dad to my first son born 08/2021.
Bringing self-calibration to continuous interaction domains and regression problems. Running user studies for IFTT-PIN.
Projects I am proud of:
- Interactive introduction to self-calibrating interface
- A curious formulation robot enables the discovery of a novel protocell behavior
- Open source robotics
- I maintain a list of low-carbon computing teaching resources.
Part of the London 15th cohort at Entrepreneur First. Research fellow at CRI Collaboratory. Teamleader in the Cronin Group on the digitization of Chemistry. Co-founded Pollen Robotics to commercialize an innovative modular robotic technology. Exhibited artist. More broadly, I enjoy building things and bloom within interdisciplinary innovative teams.
