Part II Project

As my third year project I've explored the procedural modelling of trees for use in computer graphics.

I've implemented two systems which generate tree models of many types within the blender modelling application.

The associated dissertation will be available to read soon. I'm also hoping to polish up and release one of the tools as a blender plugin as well.

ML & AI

As part of my studies I've been learning a lot about machine learning and artifical intelligence, so I thought I'd have a go at implementing some of the concepts.

So far I've implemented a Bayesian neural network, Gaussian process regression (pictured) and the Viterbi algorithm - I'm hoping to implement a support vector machine and more soon!

PidgePing

Project completed as part of the Hack Cambridge hackathon in January 2017.

An IR sensor placed in the user's mailbox would communicate via WIFI to our server which then sent out an email notifying them. Ideal for Cambridge students whose mailboxes are often far away from where they live.

A website allowed users to register and set up their device, as well as check its status.

Jagex

I'm joining the team at Jagex Games Studio for 3 months in the summer of 2016 as an intern.

I'll be working on a project as part of a small team aimed at exploring new areas which Jagex may be interested in expanding into in the future.

SplitBit

SplitBit is an online equity, salary and payments negotiation platform aimed at startups, particularly in the tech industry.

The site was created as part of the Cambridge CST group project programme. The group worked with clients Matt Johnson and Eddy Ashton from Frontier, a games company based in Cambridge.

THBC Site Redesign

View Site

Trinity Hall Boat Club's original website was designed in the 90s and was starting to show its age. I carried out a complete visual redesign and tidied up many aspects of the website code.

I also wrote a new voting system to be used for captaincy elections, as well as updating the content of many of the site's pages and adding some new ones.
