I am the co-founder of Synote Limited with Prof. Mike Wald. Synote provides a low-cost solution to make universities' lecture video accessible by providing transcripts and video printout. I have been awarded Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise fellowship in 2016 to spin out Synote Limited from University of Southampton.

Before startup Synote, I was a research fellow in University of Southampton and I have done various EU H2020 and Innovate UK projects on open data, big data and accessibility.
