Construction of a Lunar Rover 

Dec 2020 - Mar 2021

I developed the image sensing and autonomous navigation subsystem of a lunar rover. This rover is expected to be launched by JAXA in 2023. My work included:

An Optimised Satellite Constallation for Bushfire Detection (Undergraduate Thesis )

Mar 2020 - Nov 2020

The end of 2019 marked a bushfire crisis for Australia that affected about 100,000 km^2 of land. Here, we propose a constellation of 100 remote sensing satellites for efficient bushfire detection to limit future bushfires. The constellation is developed by optimising its Australian coverage using the NSGA-II algorithm. Edge computing is adopted to process the images using an on-board image processing algorithm. Several satellites are used as edge nodes to reduce fire detection time and a GEO satellite is used for inter-satellite communications. The result is a constellation that can detect bushfires faster than any currently available satellite.

Eye-Need-Help Project 

Mar 2020 - June 2020

Constructed an eye movement tracking software for mobility and speech compromised individuals to notify others of their specific needs.

Technologies used: MATLAB, Python, Backyard Brains Spikerbox and its software and filtering. 


Design of a heading hold autopilot for a recreational aircraft

Aug 2020 - Dec 2020

Designed the nonlinear lateral control system for a small aircraft to achieve heading-hold on autopilot.

Technologies used: MATLAB, Simulink.


Project Future Moon - Purdue University 

JAN 2019 - MAY 2019 A conceptual mission for the colonisation of the Moon to reach Mars
Personal Achievements: 

Optimization of Satellite orbits using a genetic algorithm

Aug 2019 – Dec 2019

This individual project involved the implementation of a genetic algorithm to optimise coverage over the United States for a Low Earth orbit satellite. The process involved the development of an accurate fitness function that uses NSGA-II, as well as conducting several optimization runs to obtain conclusive results.  

Radio occulation for downward looking receivers

Aug 2019 – Dec 2019

This individual project involved the recreation of results from radio occultation measurements made by downward receivers. The process involved the adaptation of a simple atmospheric model to derive the refractive index of air then combine them with a Gaussian error to calculate the atmospheric bending angles. Furthermore, Abel inversion was used to recreate the 'observed' refractive indices.

HISA/MISAD - University of Sydney 

JAN 2018 - Feb 2018

This group project involved the Design of a Hyperspectral/Multispectral satellite for remote sensing in Australia. My personal achievements include : 

TOILMAN - University of Sydney 

JAN 2018 - Feb 2018

This group project involved the design of an astrometric satellite for exoplanet observation in the Alpha Centauri system. I was tasked with determining the best orbit for the satellite.
