I graduated from Imperial College, London with an undergraduate Masters in Electronic and Electronic Engineering in 2005. In early 2006 I joined QinetiQ, the defence research company , in the Camera Team, in which I was involved in the development of new imaging technologies and applications across multiple optical wave bands (Visible, MWIR, etc). These included systems for enhancing and tracking targets in real environments. As a result, I joined the School of Experimental Psycology at Bristol in April 2009 to begin a PhD on modelling human visual behaviour, funded by QinetiQ and ther EPSRC.
