Dr Jennifer Cobbe

Coordinator, Trustworthy Technologies SRI


I am the Coordinator of the Trustworthy Technologies SRI, based at the Computer Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science and Technology. The Trustworthy Technologies SRI catalyses and facilitates multi-disciplinary research on issues relating to society, trust, and computer and internet technologies.

The SRI sets Cambridge’s strategic agenda around trust and technology, and fosters collaboration and engagement with industry, civil society, government, and the public around three key themes:

  • Rigorous technical foundations, for reliable, secure and safe computer systems
  • Relationships and interplays between technology and society; the nature of trust: trust in technology, and trust through technology
  • Applications within specific systems, in areas such as transport, critical infrastructure, identity, manufacturing, healthcare, financial systems and networks 

As well as conventional interdisciplinary research, we are keen to explore what value the initiative can offer potential partner organisations, including networking and brokering support, workshops and roundtables, strategic reports, and other services.
