I co-founded and am CTO at Wayve, a UK start-up pioneering end-to-end deep learning technology for autonomous driving. Additionally, I hold a research fellowship at Trinity College at the University of Cambridge. I grew up in New Zealand, studied mechatronics engineering at Auckland University, was awarded a Woolf Fisher Scholarship, helped design the algorithms which fly the Skydio drone, before completing a PhD in computer vision and robotics at Cambridge University. My work has appeared at leading computer vision, robotics and machine learning conferences. I’m interested in building robots which can learn to do more intelligent things with less data.
