About

I have an undergraduate degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of York. During my studies I developed an interest in bio-inspired robotics and the use of neural networks in learning and adaptation algorithms. I later studied an MSc in Natural Computation also at York, and am now working on a PhD at the University of Sussex in the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics. My research interests are in information theoretic approaches to robot and animal behaviour. A major component of this is developing statistical methods that describe the dynamics and causal properties of physical systems in terms of information.
