I am an EngD student sponsored by Anthropics Technology Ltd., working under primary supervision of Dr. Tim Weyrich and secondary supervision of Dr. Niloy Mitra. My research project is concerned with the aesthetics of images and crowd sourcing.

In the past I have been involved in a group project regarding the creation of readily printable, non-assembly, articulated 3D figurines.

Previously I've completed a Master's degree in Vision, Imaging and Virtual Environments within UCL with a thesis on creating 2.5D animations from ink paintings.
