Dr James Law


Welcome to my personal pages. I am the Director of Innovation and Knowledge Exchange at Sheffield Robotics and leader of the Collaborative Robotics Group. I hold a joint appointment between the Department of Computer Science and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at the University of Sheffield.

My current research focuses on human-robot co-working, and the design of collaborative robotic systems that are trustworthy and intuitive to use. I am also a member of the UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems network (UK-RAS) management board, the EPSRC Early Career Forum in Manufacturing Research, the EPSRC Engineering Early Career Forum, and a passionate science communicator.

In these pages you’ll find information about my research interests, publications, and science communication activities.
