Prof Henry Tse appointed Adjunct Professor at the University of Southampton

Connected Places Catapult’s Director of New Mobility Technologies, Prof Henry Tse, has taken up a new role as Adjunct Professor at the University of Southampton.

Henry is involved with the University of Southampton through his role as the Chair of the UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS) Hub’s Strategic Advisory Network. The TAS Hub is housed within the University’s School of Electronics & Computer Science as part of the Agents, Interactions and Complexity group.

The TAS Hub’s vision is to enable the development of socially beneficial autonomous systems that are both trustworthy in principle and trusted in practice by the public, government, and industry.

As Chair of the TAS Hub’s Strategic Advisory Network, Henry is facilitating research impact, mentoring TAS Hub researchers, and promoting knowledge transfer activities. His new position as Adjunct Professor will allow him to expand on this work through closer ties with the university and its world-class researchers.

Henry provides a wealth of experience from working in both industry and academia. He is a technology strategist, systems engineer, and engineering & programme manager. He is experienced in leading teams to design and develop innovative solutions to meet complex challenges, setting strategic direction and investment priorities, and launching strategic initiatives to develop key technical discriminators to drive future growth.

“As automation technology develops at pace and continually challenges the way society operates, it is vital that we ensure we are building systems that are trustworthy by design. By taking up this appointment at the University of Southampton I hope to be able to connect colleagues across academia and industry to work together on delivering trustworthy autonomous systems that provide real benefits to our society.”
