Curriculum Vitae


I'm a year old computer scientist based in the UK. I recently graduated with a master's degree in computer science from the University of Cambridge and am hoping to pursue a career in research. I'm particularly interested in graphics, computer vision, human-computer interaction and machine learning. A portfolio of my recent work is available at chewitt.me.



Research Assistant - Computational Media Innovation Centre - 2019

Three month RA position at the CMIC, Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, working with researchers and industry partners. Independent project work on computer vision and deep learning for omnidirectional stereoscopic video and its application to immersive mixed reality experiences.

Research Intern - Microsoft Research - 2018
