I currently work as a Senior Robotics Research Engineer at Dyson, mainly working on control and planning for mobile manipulation robots intended for helping in domestic tasks and environments.
Previously, I was a PhD student in the Intelligent Robotics Lab at the University of Birmingham, working on "Machine Learing for Dexterous Robot Manipulation". The main area of my research was applying Machine Learning techniques to develop a framework that can aid robots to perform changing-contact manipulation tasks in dynamic and unknown environments using different objects.
- I like creating robot interfaces and implementing algorithms for testing the capabilities of intelligent robot systems.
- I especially enjoy working with mobile robots and manipulators in the context of assembly tasks involving challenging interaction dynamics and complex control strategies.
- I also like discovering things (codes, algorithms, languages, music, etc.) and trying them out in my own way.
