He is Director and CoFounder of the Human Factors Excellence Research Group (HuFEx) and Director of Research for the Centre for AI, Robotics and Human-Machine Systems (IROHMS). He is an international expert in Cyberpsychology, Transport Psychology, Humans in Automation and AI, Human-Machine Interface Design, Human-Computer Interaction, and Adaptive Cognition. He has been awarded >£25M funding across ~50 grants from e.g., Airbus, CREST, DHC-STC, ERDF, EPSRC, ESRC, GoS, HSSRC, IUK, MoD, NCSC, RAEng, SOS Alarm, and the Wellcome Trust, and has published >130 major outputs. Phil works on large-scale projects funded by Airbus, where he was seconded for 3.5-years as Technical Lead in Cyberpsychology and Human Factors and is Head of the Airbus Accelerator in Human-Centric Cyber Security (H2CS). Recently, Phil became Director of a new Airbus Centre of Excellence in Human-Centric Cyber Security at Cardiff University and is one of two Academic Leads for a Strategic Partnership between Airbus and Cardiff University. Phil is also Visiting Professor at Luleå University of Technology – Psychology, Division of Health, Medicine & Rehabilitation, Sweden


Phil is UK PI on an ESRC-JST project (2020-24) (with collaborators at e.g., Universities of Kyoto and Osaka) on the Rule of Law in the Age of AI and autonomous systems with a key focus on blame assignment and trust in autonomous vehicles – exploring Human-Robot Interaction and Explainable AI (XAI) as core interventions. He also works on two projects funded by the NCSC focussed on interruptions effects on cyber security behaviours and a project funded via R-Cloud. Phil currently supervises nine PhD students. Other recent projects have been funded by e.g. HSSRC on topics such as developing Human Factors guidelines for Robots and Autonomous Systems (RAS).


Phil overseas the IROHMS Simulation Laboratory based within the School of Psychology at Cardiff University that currently comprises five state-of the art zones: immersive dome; transport simulator; cognitive robotics; VR/AR; and a command and control centre.
