Sammy completed his BEng Electronic Engineering in The University of Manchester focusing on developing instrumentation for brain-computer interfaces. Later he joined the Sensors CDT and is currently working on developing novel technologies for infrared sensing. The aim of the project is to develop high performance/low cost infrared imaging system using carbon nanotubes that can be used in future autonomous vehicles. In his spare time, Sammy is working for WaterScope, a Cambridge based-startup aiming to develop an easy-to use, low cost solution for bacteria detection. Sammy is part of Christ's College where he is a member of the MCR committee and is also rowing for the first men's team.
