My research looks at the intersection of ethics and safety in autonomous systems. I'm particularly interested in the interaction between safety requirements, security requirements, ethical imperatives and trust constraints in assistive robots and autonomous vehicles (AVs).
I've previously worked with safety-critical systems in the defence and nuclear sector, and have been involved in producing and validating several international standards for these domains. I am a member of the BSI AMT/10 and AMT/10/1 Committees, providing UK input into ISO/TC 299 (standardisation in robotics) and BS 8611 (ethical design and application of robotic devices). I am also a member of the IEEE P7009 Working Group, currently developing a standard for fail-safe mechanisms in autonomous systems. I am a founding member of the Safety of Autonomous Systems Working Group, as well as a member of the IET Technical Committee that developed the Code of Practice for Cyber Security and Safety. I am also leading two projects examining the role of narrative in societal acceptance of technology, with a particular focus on autonomous systems.
I've given invited talks, seminars and keynotes at a number of institutions and events including:
