Personal Statement

Hardworking, highly motivated and ambitious final year computer science student at Aberystwyth University (on track for a2:1), previously employed at TC Aerospace Systems. I’m always looking for new opportunities to learn new skills and technologies that interest me.

  • Designed and developed client-side reusable components using the Emberjs Framework with appropriate unit testing.

Major Project

My Major Project is called YOPO it’s built on top of the YOLO network (https://dx.doi.org/10.1109/CVPR.2017.690) that is currently used to classify objects in images or videos feeds in real time. YOPO changes the network so that the network can estimate human poses in 2D images or video feeds. GitHub – https://github.com/rij12/YOPO
