Areas of research include, Meta-heuristic Optimization (specifically Genetic Algorithms) for robotic control, semi-autonomous flight, embedded systems. Primary research has been in the use of genetic algorithms for robotic control, completing my PhD thesis in this topic in 2012. This research has to date lead to the publication of a book chapter, a journal publication and five conference papers. Further research in the use of quad rotor helicopters for search and rescue is also being investigated.
