Curriculum Vitae


I'm a 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



Intern - Cydar - Summer 2017

Two month internship working as part of the team at Cydar in Cambridge, helping to develop imaging technologies for surgeons to use in the OR.

Intern - Jagex Game Studios - Summer 2016

Three month internship as part of a small team, focussed on projects involving the prototyping and development of potential future business opportunities for Jagex.

Webmaster - Trinity Hall Boat Club - 2014-2017

Treasurer - Trinity Hall June Event - 2016

Management of £150,000 budget and assistance in production of event hosting 2000 guests celebrating the end of the academic year.


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.
