Development of a command, control and analytics platform for fleets of GPS-and-sensor-equipped agricultural vehicles to be deployed in remote locations with unreliable internet access. Part of a government initiative to improve accountability and yield through technology and data. I work closely with electrical and mechanical engineers, and I am responsible for developing communication protocols and end-to-end systems development, hence my work spans from writing embedded C for microprocessors all the way to the Python backend and web UI.

May 2015 - August 2015
4-month feasibility study on sentiment analysis of images in social media, funded by a research grant from the UK government's technology strategy board. Using the Yfcc100m and YLI datasets comprised of 100 million images, labels, and metadata, I investigated both existing and novel methods to develop a commercially-viable product.

May 2014 - August 2014
8-week 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 the few sites they know and SmartFence infers the suitability for the rest of the web. We developed several different cluster/kernel-based models and visualization schemes, and I delivered a prototype for the OneWeek company-wide hackathon. A patent was applied for.

I am most interested in data-driven decision-making, especially when they directly improve quality of life, e.g. imaging and natural language systems, assistive technologies, robotics, or medical applications.
