I encourage prospective postdoctoral researchers, PhD candidates, MEng/MSc students, and undergraduate students interested in our research to contact me. Please include a CV and a brief statement of your research interests. For current Imperial students, I regularly post opportunities for independent projects in the Department of Computing Project Portal. I am also open to student-proposed projects–please reach out to discuss.
