    Personal profile

    Research interests

    I am Research Associate in Ethics of Autonomous Systems at the Centre for Ethics in Medicine. I collaborate with colleagues from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory and the School of Sociology on the UKRI-funded Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS) Node in Functionality project. Within this project, I am undertaking an empirical bioethics study (ARET) on developers', end users', and other stakeholders' understandings of, and ethical concerns around, trust and trustworthiness in autonomous systems with evolving functionality, which can rapidly adapt their functionality to changes in the environment or in the systems themselves without a human controller.

    Prior to my postdoc, I completed my DPhil in Mental Health Ethics at the University of Oxford (2021). In my DPhil, I investigated adolescents’ moral concerns around the use of emerging technologies in autism genomics. 

    I am passionate about engaging the general publics in debates around the ethical implications of technological advances, and I have been involved in several public engagement initiatives.
