About Me

I am interested in the law, policy and ethics of emerging military technologies.  In particular, how autonomous weapons, artificial intelligence, robotics and cybersecurity challenge international law, international relations, foreign policy and strategy.  What is more, I am keenly interested in how these technologies support or detract from normative principles in the just war tradition.

I am also presently putting together a dataset on semi-autonomous weapons systems to track the development of autonomous technologies over the past 60 years.
