I am a PhD student who’s main interests lie in robotics and control. My current research is focused on developing a hybrid control framework for legged robots that combines optimisation with reinforcement learning. I initially completed my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering at Coventry University and then went on to gain an MSc in Mechatronics and Robotics at the University of Leeds.
