CV

Matt joined the group in 2013 as a DPhil student and is a member of Keble College.

Matt contributes to the Europa2 project and is interested in large-scale, life-long navigation, including:

  • Robust localisation in the face of environmental change,
  • Fleetwide management and distribution of experience and expertise in visual localisation

Matt completed his Bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Cape Town, and is committed to innovation with social focus through his work.

Outside of robotics research, Matt enjoys being outdoors (hiking, bouldering, slacklining), indoors (film, meditation, records, haiku), and is particularly excited by innovative/disruptive technologies effecting social change  (hackspaces, cryptocurrencies).
