Brandon is a Research Assistant at the Centre for Human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems and is currently involved in projects identifying the risks of artificial general intelligence systems and supporting the evaluation of a military artificial intelligence decision support system.

He has previously supported a longitudinal project which introduced systems thinking methods to Queensland Health practitioners. This involved the delivery of eight workshops throughout Queensland to train practitioners in the use of systems thinking risk assessment and accident analysis methods. Data was collected and analysed over 9 months for dissemination through a report, conference presentations, and peer-reviewed journal articles.

Brandon completed his Psychology Honours at the Centre and is now PhD student investigating the risks of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) with a Research Training Program scholarship. In addition to BCIs, Brandon is interested in applying Human Factors to problems such as the integration of other advanced technologies into society and defence sciences with his previous experience in the military.
