Matt is a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Mobile Robotics Group and a Junior Research Fellow at Kellogg College.
In terms of enabling autonomy of intelligent machines, Matt is interested in navigation and scene understanding in general, including: mapping, localisation, detection, and segmentation. In all of these cases he is particularly interested in achieving more robust performance in challenging conditions for vision and LiDAR and is similarly an enthusiastic adopter of FMCW scanning radar.
Matt has contributed to various projects at ORI, including: Europa2, DRIVEN, SAX and ADE.
Matt holds a BSc in Mechatronics Engineering from the University of Cape Town and a DPhil in Engineering Science from Keble College.
