CERC Research Fellow
As a Research Fellow with CSIRO's Data61, I am part of a multidisciplinary team developing the science to enable humans and machines to work together in ways that complement the strengths of each. My work with the Collaborative Intelligence and Responsible Innovation Future Science Platforms investigates the nature and function of human trust in these collaborative intelligence systems, and explores practical and impactful pathways for insights from the social sciences to inform the development, deployment and evaluation of novel technologies.
I am also an Emerging Scholar of the Center for the Science for Moral Understanding. The Center seeks to reduce intolerance and increase moral understanding through scientific research, public engagement, and scholarship. My program of research explores how divergent understandings of what is harmful and who is harmed contribute to polarisation in the United States, and tests interventions to ameliorate these effects.
I completed my PhD at the University of Melbourne in the Social/Personality Lab and the Behavioural Ethics, Affect and Meaning Lab., studying semantic expansion of harm-based psychological concepts such as prejudice, bullying, trauma, and mental disorder.
