Matthew’s most valuable work experience at Dart was his involvement with Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa from conception to completion, as it gave him the chance to see a large-scale project in practice while studying the theory in engineering.

For his post-graduate studies, Matthew chose to research image processing and computer vision within the scope of medical images. His thesis involved classifying video frames for bronchoscopic procedures to filter out uninformative data.

Looking to the future, Matthew hopes to build a portfolio of projects that have substantial benefit to global audiences.
