Between 2010 and 2022 I served as Director of the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility of De Montfort University.
I am a Member and Director of ORBIT-RRI limited, a non-profit spin-out company owned by De Montfort University and the University of Oxford which is dedicated to furthering responsible (research and) innovation.
Most of my time is spent conducting research, which on occasion leads to publications, but more frequently to the administration of proposals and research projects.
I am currently involved in the EU Future and Emerging Flagship Human Brain Project as Ethics Director, the environMENTAL project as leader of the responsible innovation activities and the iRECS project. In the past I have coordinated the following EU projects: EMBRACE, SHERPA, Responsible-Industry, CONSIDER and ETICA. In collaboration with Marina Jirotka I led the EPSRC projects Framework on RRI in ICT and ORBIT which led to the ORBIT spin-out.
