Jeff came to Oxford in 2013 as a DPhil student and is a member of University College. He is working on perception systems for the autonomous car project, exploring how scene information can improve object detection and facilitate life long learning in perceptual systems.

He completed his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering on a Fulbright Scholarship at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, USA (2012). At Georgia Tech he worked with the Healthcare Robotics Lab on control systems and motion planning for robotic manipulation with whole arm tactile sensing.

Jeff also holds a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Auckland in New Zealand.

In addition to studying, Jeff has spent time working in the robotics industry, completing internships at Rethink Robotics and Willow Garage, and working as a robotics engineer at a New Zealand based startup developing autonomous forklifts.
