Background

I am currently a D.Phil student in the Oxford Control Group in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford, where I have been since 2009. I have a Degree in Mathematics (BSc-Adv) and a Degree in Electrical Engineering (BE) from the University of Sydney, finishing as an undergraduate at the end of 2006. I worked for 2 years at Esso Australia (ExxonMobil) in process control, instrumentation and optimisation, which was predominantly on natural gas processing plants. In 2009, I was a research associate at Research School of Information Sciences and Engineering, Australian National University (ANU). In 2011, I was a visiting student at the Dynamical Systems and Control Group, California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
