I am a Research Associate in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge.

My research focuses on applying probabilistic methods to improve interfaces and interactions in virtual and augmented reality.

Before starting my PhD I worked as a Senior Automation Engineer at Australia's Cooperative Research Centre for Mining (now called Mining3) where I helped develop autonomous mining equipment.

My MPhil (at the University of Queensland) examined the perception requirements for effective remote control bulldozing. I completed my bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne. I also have a BA in Japanese.

I am interested in Human-Computer Interaction, Machine Learning, Automation and Software Development.
