About

Matt joined the group in 2013 as a DPhil student as a member of Keble College and now works as a postdoctoral research assistant on the DRIVEN project.

Matt completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Cape Town and is interested in visual localisation, map management, multirobot systems, adversarial conditions, and radar.

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