Biography

Biography

I am an aerospace systems engineer and have worked in aerospace and automotive industries. I am very much interested in developing intelligent control and navigation systems for aerospace, automotive and marine applications. 

Qualifications

I have completed my BEng (Hons) in aerospace systems engineering at University of Hertfordshire, UK in 2011. Following completing my undergraduates, I worked in UH-RAF academy funded project as a simulation engineer developing a real-time simulator for pilot studies. Then, I did my MPhil in engineering focusing on intelligent control systems for UAVs at University of Leicester from 2012-2014. Then, continued to work as research associate at UoL (BAE systems) project focusing on space robots/UAVs. I have worked as teaching associate at University of Kent from 2015-2016. Then, I did my PhD in electronic and electrical engineering at UCL (UCL-JLR funded project), focusing on intelligent adaptive control systems for electric vehicles with novel powertrain configurations.
