Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently working on two EPSRC projects one studying human behaviour in aligning laser systems the other studying trust in auonomous systems

Previously I worked on Human Robot Interaction and Explainable AI as Experimental Lead for the HRI theme of the ORCA Hub project. That extended work from the MIRIAM project involving a conversational agent for autonomous systems including autonomous underwater survey vehicles. 

Other research interests are: Image-based emotion feedback, Image summarisation, Cognition; Promoting collaboration through computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) and visualisation; also User experience when using visualisations of complex data.
