Professional experience
Research Software Development Engineer - Ocean 5 Technologies Singapore
2017 - 2021
  • Designed and implemented a distributed messaging framework to support pilot-from-shore capabilities for underwater vehicles.
  • Developed a controller to distribute energy from a hydraulic powerplant in a tractor-drill combine depending on workload or sensor input.
  • Prototyped a Pytorch-based computer vision system for robotic survey of undersea pipelines.
Embedded systems / distributed systems • imaging
R&D Scientist - Digital:MR

Completed a feasibility study on sentiment analysis of images in social media, funded by a research grant from the UK government's technology strategy board. Starting from the Yfcc100m and YLI datasets comprised of 100 million images, labels, and metadata, I investigated both novel and existing methods and developed a commercial product, which has since evolved to be based on convolutional neural nets.

Supervised learning • imaging
Research Intern - Microsoft Research Cambridge

Completed a research internship through the Bright Minds Intern Competition programme in the Machine Learning and Perception research group, working with Principal / Senior Researchers Pushmeet Kohli, Yoram Bachrach, Ulrich Paquet, and Filip Radlinski.

I worked on Project SmartFence - an application for web access control. Users block or allow a few sites they know about, and SmartFence automatically infers the suitability of the rest of the web. We developed several different cluster/kernel-based models and visualization schemes. The final model generates a high dimensional embedding of websites from search sessions (think associated filtering). I delivered a prototype for the OneWeek company-wide hackathon, and a patent was applied for.

Unsupervised learning • information retrieval
Founding Developer -

Internship with UniEntry to develop a pilot site to help sixth form students find the right university. Developed a platform that filters information from the UK's Higher Education Statistics Agency and gives recommendations based on students' registered information and grades.
