Doctoral Candidate in Robot Ethics, University of Canterbury

Professionally, I spent 17 years working in software engineering for organisations such as British Telecom, Telstra Australia, Fitch Ratings, James Cook University and Lumata. Academically, I have recently returned to university to do a doctoral thesis on robot ethics. The working title is "Moral Code: Programming the Ethical Robot." To date, I have given several conference papers on programming ethics into robots and published a book, Ethics and Security Automata.
