Biography

I am a Research Fellow in the Human Factors Research Group at the University of Nottingham. I started a three-year Anne McLaren Research Fellowship in October 2013, which supports work in the area of driver behaviour.

I am currently involved in projects on vehicle automation, vulnerable road users, vehicle displays and simulation. I am also interested in human-computer interaction more generally. My previous work has focussed on driver distraction, flight-deck design and systems safety. I was awarded an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in 2012 from the University of Southampton. My EngD research focussed on the usability of in-vehicle interfaces and Ergonomics evaluation methods and was sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover. I also have a BSc in Ergonomics (Hons) from Loughborough University.

Expertise Summary

My research interests include driver behaviour, vehicle automation, human-computer interaction, usability, and ergonomics methods. I have a specific interest in Transport, covering multiple domains including road, aviation, maritime and rail.
