I am a Ph.D. Research Student working within the IAS Laboratory. My area of research is Autonomous Formation Flight and as such, my contention currently reads like so:-


It is my contention that it is possible to develop a set of algorithms, that allow and unknown quantity of autonomous agents to manoeuvre into a defined formation, and attempt to remain in position despite external perturbation


I worked towards proving the contention above for just over two and a half years. During this time I have developed the following items that may be of use to others:-

During my time in the IAS Lab I also held the position of Web Master for this Web Site and taught "C Programming For Control" to undergraduates.
