ABOUT ME

I'm a 3rd year PhD student at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh supervised by Dr. Kartic Subr , Prof. Nicholas Taylor and Dr. Subramanian Ramamoorthy . I am part of the Centre of Doctoral Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems.
My interests are in the application of intuitive physics models for robotic reasoning and manipulation of deformable objects.
