I did an undergraduate masters in Informatics (MInf) at the University of Edinburgh, worked as a programmer for a bit, then changed my mind and went back to University. I did my PhD at the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation at Edinburgh, and am currently working as a Post-Doctorate research associate one building over in the Institute for Perception, Action, and Behaviour.
My PhD thesis was all about Unawareness: What happens when computational agents have to learn the task itself as they go along (rather than just optimizing parameters in a pre-specified domain)?
In my current role, I'm interested in incorporating safety guarantees and interpretability properties into robotic and computer vision tasks.

In my spare time I like to design small games. You can find a list of them on my Itch.io page. If you're interested in making games, I suggest using Unity, or GameMaker , then joining a Game Jam to get inspired.
