Hugo joined MRG in 2011 as a DPhil student and member of New College. He is working for the V-Charge project, which aims to implement autonomous valet parking systems. Other collaborators in the project are VW, Bosch, ETH Zurich, TU Braunschweig, and Parma University.

His current research explores the use of “introspective” classifiers, which are aware of when they might be assigning an incorrect label. These are designed for use in safety-critical systems, where mistakes can have catastrophic consequences.

He completed his Masters of Engineering Science at Oxford in 2011, where he specialised in Information Engineering and was a member of Brasenose College.

Hugo is a keen hiker, diver and plays ultimate frisbee.
