During my PhD, I conducted research on the autonomous helicopter ( AVATR) in the Robotics Embedded Systems Lab. The main focus of my research was on 3D situational awareness for UAVs, including stereo-based obstacle detection, 3D path planning, and dynaimc replanning. The aim was to allow an autonomous helicotper to navigate through environments such as urban canyons.

For my MSc in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cape Town I researched various aspects of robotics and built a robot and an animatron.
