Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Sam Gunner is an experienced electronic engineer, currently working in academia as a Research Assosiate at the University of Bristol. Sam has many years worth of industrial experience, during which time he developed and deployed a number of disributed monitoring systems (from Urban Tarffic Control in London, to wind farm SCADA on the sides of Scottish Mountains) and the insights gained during this time are cruical to Sam's research.

Within academia Sam's research has focussed on the strategic development and deployment of technology interventions to better understand and manage the urban environment. Sam has deployed sophisticated technology based systems in a number of real world applications, creating a realtime Structural Health Monitoring dashboard for the Clifton Suspension Bridge, instrementing a fleet of electric bicycles to obtain detailed active mode mobility data, and the integration of edge compute into an Urban Traffic Control system to obtain finer grain information about vehicle movements.

To achieve this Sam's research has developed technology integration and resilience understanding, but has also relied heavily on Soft Systems research to manage the interactions between the technology and the wider human context. Sam always aims to ground his research in the requirements of those individuals who are actually making operational decision about how a city is run, targeting his projcts to make sure that they devlier useful insights that can support those people in their roles.
