Edward Lambert


I started my PhD in September 2018 on the topic of optimal planning strategies for urban autonomous vehicles. In 2013 I got my MEng in Engineering Science from Lincoln College, Oxford. After that I worked as a software engineer in the UK for a number of years. Before I came to Leeds I was a software developer on a satellite positioning system for construction machinery at a firm called Trimble, based in New Zealand.
