Originally from the UK, my interest in engineering and design started whilst studying for an undergraduate degree in Physics at the University of Oxford. During my time at Oxford I was inspired to pursue the idea of communication through a project with partners at Airbus, where I worked on designing subsystems for an aerobot mission.
Technology should empower us to better society; one only has to look at the profound ways in which the internet has shaped our modern world to realise the immense power of communication and computer networking. Having been inspired by the potential of communication engineering, I then decided to undertake an MSc at the University of Leeds in Digital Communications Networks.
Following time spent in the Embedded and Networked Systems Group at TU Delft under the supervision of Dr. P. Pawełczak, I am currently a Lecturer and PhD candidate in the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at TU Delft under the supervision of Himanshu Verma and Prof. G. Kortuem.
Throughout my time at Delft I've become interested in the ways in which we interact with technology, and how we can use human-centred design to develop practical and sustainable systems. My current research focuses on human-computer interaction in the context of battery-free computing.
