A sunrise alarm clock I am creating, for peaceful awakenings everyday. The first prototype is built and works remarkably well.
Sleep Detection and Optimal Awakening
My university thesis, a precursor to today's smart watches and activity monitors. A device worn on the wrist that combines an optical heart rate monitor, a temperature sensor, and an accelerometer.
3D model interpretation by projecting on a 2D screen with perspective change through face tracking.
A CSIRO project on developing autonomous six-legged robot swarms. I developed an obstacle avoidance system using infrared sensors on ROS
Dangerous Driving Detection
An app to help keep people safe on the roads. It detects when the driver swerves or brakes excessively, or changes lanes too quickly.
Easy P'sy Plates
Working with some colleagues from university, we designed a product for learner drivers that easily displayed their plates. We won a monetary prize for our business pitch and business plan.
One device utilising both infrared and ultrasound technology was built, and another was designed that adapted a speleologist's light to measure distances in dark environments.
Muscle Powered Knee Exoskeleton
I designed a knee exoskeleton that could be built using resources available in 3rd world countries. It consists of an electrically stimulated goat muscle actuator with an artificial blood supply.
Can you balance a stick in the air? This device slides itself along a guide pole and swings a pendulum into an upright vertical position.
Website Design & Development
You can see this website's code at github. It's been built from the ground up to demonstrate my capabilities.
I have researched and trialled many website building services and frameworks, and squarespace is my favourite for various reasons. I built Ninox Robotics's website with it.
Monitoring IT Infrastructure
Delivering root cause analysis of faults in enterprise IT infrastructures with iQ Consult.
I plan, manage, and collaborate on almost all projects with Asana.
I'm interested in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and the juxtaposition of how the brain and biological systems function.
Machine Learnt Handwriting
I've implemented a machine learning algorithm that interprets handwritten numbers.
Thinking Rationally and Avoiding Bias
The human mind is susceptible to a multitude of biases. Simply reading about them has raised my awareness of their effects in real-world situations, and hopefully also reduced my susceptibility.
Since learning how to use the Mac terminal, I use it surprisingly often. I find vim to be very time efficient, and seem to use it for the majority of coding.
All of my software related work utilises git. It gives me much peace of mind.
Pages, Numbers & Keynote
I find the Apple office suite to be the most hassle free and professional when compared to competitors. In saying that, I use Google Docs for collaboration.
I love experiencing new things, and travelling the world seems to be a good way to do so. I love water and will dive in whenever I get the chance. I also find multi-day hikes to be incredibly fulfilling.
On a more serious note, I am concerned about the survival of life. Based on a lot of evidence, space exploration is key, and I like to keep myself in the loop.
I try and keep my possessions to a functional minimum. I'm also quite conscious of my environmental impact, which I also attempt to minimise.
