I am a PhD student working under the supervision of Professor Cédric John and Dr Rossella Arcucci, researching the application of varied machine learning methods to geoscience problems. Currently working with CRISM Hyperspectral Satellite Data on Mars to characterise the surface geology with a range of machine learning and generative AI methods. I am an IX PhD Student, and also associated with the Data Science Institute.
