After finishing school Octavio took a gap year working and volunteering around the world. Having found an interest in Computer Science, he decided to join Royal Holloway in 2017. Since then he has learnt the basics of programming, produced projects participated in hackathons. He is now working on his first research opportunity.
Project: Transport Simulation Platform as Synthetic Data Generator. The purpose of this project is to construct a simulation based on a public transport system using open source information to extract later any required synthetically generated data:
- Explore methods of obtaining available public transport data systematically
- Created techniques to apply the above data in a way relevant to this project
- Finally, use the above to create a simulation that approximates real-world transport as closely as possible given the data obtained
