I am a PhD candidate at Monash University, Australia, advised by Prof. Lindsay Kleeman and Prof. Tom Drummond. My work focuses on event based vision where I have worked on optic flow and motion segmentation from events. More recently I have worked on optic flow and image reconstruction using deep neural networks. Event based cameras are novel, bio-inspired visual sensors - much like the receptor cells in your cornea, pixels in an event camera operate asynchronously and independently. They do this by sending spatiotemporal information whenever a pixel detects a change in brightness. This has several benefits when compared to conventional cameras, such as ultra-low latency, high dynamic range and no motion-blur. For more, check out my research.
I completed school at Golden Bay High School in Takaka, New Zealand with a an overall Excellence L3 endorsement in 2011.
In 2012 I moved to Germany where I completed a B.Sc. in Systems Engineering majoring in robotics at the University of Bremen in June 2015.
After taking a break to travel in Europe, South America and Indonesia I started my PhD at Monash in April 2017. From June 2018 to December 2018 I joined the Robotics and Perception Group at the University of Zurich/ETH Zurich under Davide Scaramuzza, where I worked closely with Guillermo Gallego.
I am currently working on my thesis in anticipation of graduating in early 2021 after a planned internship at FRL in Seattle.
