Material Scientist // Human-Computer interaction engineer
I am EPSRC postdoctoral research fellow in Human Computer Interaction at the University of Bristol, UK and am currently on a secondment in the HCI Engineering Group at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). My research aims to create synergy between the fields of Material Science and Computer Science, with a particular focus on fabrication and shape-change. I have a background in Aerospace Engineering and undertook my PhD within the Advanced Composites Collaboration for Innovation and Science (ACCIS) at Bristol developing 3D printed vascular networks for self-healing polymeric materials. I'm an avid CrossFitter, certified Rescue Scuba Diver (Divemaster in training) and enjoy playing the guitar and piano in my spare time. I also like the odd bit of travelling and photo-taking.
