I’m a post-doctoral researcher at King’s College London studying how our hands and arms are affected after a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, and how we might be able to reverse the paralysis these injuries induce.
I did my PhD in Neuroscience at King’s College London and was supervised by Dr. Lawrence Moon and Dr. Dhireshan Gadiagellan, whose start-up, Research Devices Ltd, I collaborate with and offer consultation, in addition to my academic research duties at King’s. Our partnership began when we commercialised a small gadget I invented to help researchers carry out preclinical dosing, sold now to every continent, and many reputable pharmaceutical companies.
Since then, I have used Machine Learning, Computer Vision and robotics to create solutions to automate many of the behavioural tests we use to evaluate whether a potential drug therapy might reverse paralysis. See here for an example. My prototypes have lead to the awarding of research contracts which are still ongoing now. I use Raspberry Pis, 3D printing and Python 3 to prototype devices, mainly, and design hardware using SolidWorks.
I’m using this website to host tutorials I’ve made over the past few years. I frequently refer back to them myself so maybe they’ll be useful for you, too!
Disclaimer: the code in my tutorials are not frequently updated. As Python libraries change over time, as may the dependencies of any programs detailed in the tutorials. For this reason, I recommend referring to the issues tab of the relevant GitHub repository, or Stack Overflow.
