Automation technologies for the primary sector
I’m a Senior Research Engineer within the Advanced Mechatronics team where I specialise in creating automation technologies for both frontier ventures and established companies in the primary sector.
Prototype development, mechanical design/analysis and Industry 4.0 initiatives are some of my focus areas, with a more recent engagement with Web3 technologies. I actually began my research career working on the design and development of robotic prototypes for a consortium of meat processing companies to automate the heavily manual processes in freezing works.
I take satisfaction in solving challenges, the opportunity for learning and seeing a concept take shape into an actual workable product. One of these was the DAT project which involved a multi-disciplinary, cross-team effort working in a difficult environment to deliver a terrific outcome for the customer.
My fellow scientists and engineers are a continual source of inspiration and I enjoy being able to work directly with customers to provide solutions incorporating new technologies.
