Research Fellow for Cyber-physical advances
Dr Alison Halford is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Computational Science and Mathematical Modelling at Coventry University. Her research looks at ways to facilitate community engagement and capacity building that promotes greater inclusion and equality in decision making. Having recently worked on the Humanitarian Engineering and Energy for Displacement (HEED) project, Alison brings to WP1.1 experience of responsible innovation that strives for ethical, transparent and sustainable protocols when developing cyber-physical systems. She will also have a role in translating research findings into real-life contexts to improve stakeholder understanding of cyber-physical advances and increase the deployment of AI and intelligence in Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES).
