I am a Senior Research Associate in the Digital Technology Group of the Computer Laboratory working on Infrastructure-free Indoor Positioning using smartphone-grade sensing. I'm also a Chartered Physicist, and an Associate Editor of the Journal of the Royal Institute of Navigation
Previously I was a Principal Scientist at BAE Systems where I developed technologies such as the NAVSOP suite of positioning systems.
I hold three degrees in Physics from the University of Cambridge, including a PhD in the Effects of Multipath Interference on Radio Positioning Systems .
My current research is concentrating on Infrastructure-free Indoor Positioning and
Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping.
My further interests include: Navigation using Signals of Opportunity, GPS-denied Navigation, Computer Vision, Sensor Fusion,Wireless Security, Software-Defined Radio, and Autonomy.
- Infrastructure-free indoor positioning on a standard smartphone using SLAM and opportunistic sensing
- Robust gait detection
I am currently supervising the Security I course for Part IB Computer Science students.
I was recently asked by the IEEE Signal Processing Society to record one of my publications (an introduction to the Kalman Filter) as a video lecture. The lecture can be viewed here.
