Pieter completed his Bachelor of Engineer (Reseach & Development) (Honours) and Bachelor of Science at ANU in 2018, majoring in Mechatronics and Mathematics, respectively. In 2017 he worked as a student intern at Data61 at CSIRO in Brisbane. His engineering honours thesis, completed in 2017, studied non-linear multi-agent system formation control using unit quaternions.
In October 2018 Pieter commenced his PhD in non-linear observer theory under the supervision of Professor Rob Mahony at ANU. He is researching geometric observers for non-linear control problems, such as SLAM, with a focus on applying Lie group symmetries and implementation on mobile robots. In this research, he is also looking at novel hardware options for implementing these systems.
