I graduated from a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics) with first class honours and University Medal from the University of Newcastle in 2014. In 2016, following a short period in industry, I started a PHD in probabilistic modelling and estimation of strain fields.
My research has focussed on the probabilistic modelling and estimation of strain fields from neutron diffraction and transmission measurements. This has lead me to research non-parametric models such as Gaussian processes that can be tailored to satisfy physical constraints.
I am currently collaborating on projects with Carl Jidling and Professor Thomas Schön from Uppsala University in Sweden. I have also collaborated on experiments at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (JPARC) and Australia's Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation with Dr Vladimir Luzin (ANSTO), Dr Oliver Kirstein (ESS, Sweden), Dr Anton S. Tremsin (Berkeley), and Dr Takenao Shinohara (JPARC).
I deliver several lectures on robotics design to students undertaking the Warman challenge as part of a Mechanical Engineering design course and was involved in the development of new Arduino based labs for this course. In the past I tutored several courses within the Mechatronics program including MCHA2000, MCHA3000, and MCHA3900.
