I am an ESRC funded PhD candidate supervised by Dr Daniel Prince and Dr Mark Lacy. My research is focused on unmanned and robotic systems in contemporary conflict and seeks to understand how these rapidly shifting domains can create novel vulnerabilities in the context of defence and security.

  • Emerging and disruptive technologies in contemporary conflict and international relations
  • The changing character of war, Grey Zone, and Ambiguous Warfare
  • The implications of unmanned and autonomous systems for the future of warfare
  • Cyber Physical Systems and the IoT in both civilian and military contexts

Current Projects
