I am a Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT. My research is focused on probabilistic methods for localization, tracking and mapping. In particular, I am the perception lead on MIT’s Darpa Robotics Challenge team – a multi-year multi-PI competition developing technologies for semi-autonomous humanoid robotic exploration and manipulation led by Russ Tedrake.

I previously worked with John Leonard in MIT’s Marine Robotics Group. My PhD was obtained from the Signal Processing Group of the University of Cambridge (advised by Simon Godsill).

Background

I was a PhD student in the Signal Processing Group at the Department of Engineering of the University of Cambridge. Simon Godsill was my supervisor with Andrew Blake as my industrial supervisor at Microsoft Research – who kindly funded my PhD studies. I completed my undergraduate degree in Electronic Engineering (BEng) in University College Dublin (Ireland) in June 2004 where I worked with Scott Rickard.
