From 2016-2020 I was working for Nanyang Technological University Singapore, conducting research into autonomous (self-driving) road vehicles. While out there I fell back into the healthy habit of cycling regularly and enjoyed competing in some cycling events in Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. I am now back in London doing broader intelligent/future mobility work at the Connected Places Catapult.
