year old student currently reading for a masters in computer science at the University of Cambridge. I'm hoping to secure an internship or apprenticeship
in the software research & development field starting summer 2018; I'd like to pursue a career in the design and implementation of software systems after
finishing my studies. I'm particularly interested in graphics, vision and interaction. A portfolio of my recent work is available at chewitt.me.

Identifying plant species from leaf images using shape featuresPDF
Paper presenting a novel feature set for shape-only leaf identification from images. Over 90% accuracy is achieved on all but one public dataset, with top-four accuracy for these datasets over 98%.
Confidence measures for CNN classification using Gaussian processesPDF
Paper presenting a hybrid classification technique using Gaussian processes fitted on features extracted by a convolutional neural network to enable estimation of prediction confidence. The classifer is evaluated on the MNIST dataset and shown to have somewhat meaningful implications for confidence estimation.
Procedural generation of tree models for use in computer graphics - 2017PDF
Project and associated dissertation produced for part II of the Cambridge BA course evaluating the effectiveness of
Lindenmeyer-Systems and a fully parametric approach in producing realistic 3D models of trees for CGI. Implemented
two systems in python for use with Blender, as well as an investigation of automatic design using genetic algorithms.
