About

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.

Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to say ‘hi!’ to me on Twitter, my GitHub, or here!
