Brief Summary

My research is focused on developing an ethical and pragmatic recognition of, and respect for, otherness and difference in communication. I write about communication theory and practice, and draw upon varied examples—taken from science and technology, science fiction and creative art—to illustrate the ideas in my work. I am particularly interested in exploring the communicative possibilities illustrated by human interactions with humanoid and non-humanoid robots. I am now turning these ideas towards an analysis of online communication, online ethics and human-technology interactions more generally, although I maintain a core interest in examples of human-robot interaction and human perceptions of autonomous robots.

My first degree was in Natural Sciences, completed in the UK. I then worked in Information Technology for over ten years before emigrating to Australia and returning to academic study, teaching and research.
