As a member of the Goal-Oriented Long-Lived Systems (GOALS) lab, I am particularly interested in the real-world deployment of robotic systems that act under uncertainty with real-world resource constraints. Areas of interest within robotics include:• Model-based sequential decision making• Meta-reasoning for compute constraints and time-varying environments• Bayesian / probabilistic reinforcement learning• Markov decision process safe exploration• Formal methodsSite guide: on desktop, click/drag to pan and mousewheel to zoom. On touch, pinch and drag away.

Use "Reset View" on the navigation bar if you get lost. I started on a PhD at the Oxford Robotics Institute in 2020. Since then I've worked with robots that have arms, legs, wheels, and propellors. I was previously the manipulation team leader of Team ORIon, competing in RoboCup in 2019 (Sydney) and 2022 (Thailand, where I was also acting team leader). Between 2016 and 2020 I undertook an MEng in Oxford's Engineering Department, specialising in information engineering, microelectronics, control theory, and mathematical methods. I received an IET Diamond Jubilee engineering scholarship for the duration of my undergraduate degree. In this time I also worked in an embedded software engineering role at Cambridge Consultants, as part of their Technology Scholar programme. I enjoy technical leadership and running my own electronic engineering mini-projects. These include leading a team of ~15 undergraduates to design, build and program a "Mars rover" robot, and launching a high-altitude balloon scientific payload to 20km+ altitude. Outside of work, I enjoy swimming and indoor bouldering. 20201.Budd, M., Lacerda, B., Duckworth, P., West, A., Lennox, B., & Hawes, N. (2020, October).
