Research Project Manager


Louise is currently the Research Project Manager for Project Bluebird: An AI system for air traffic control (Advancing probabilistic machine learning to deliver safer, more efficient, and predictable air traffic control).

Project Bluebird is a partnership between NATS and The Alan Turing Institute, supported through an investment from EPSRC. The research vision is to deliver the world’s first artificial intelligence (AI) system to control a section of airspace in live trials, working with air traffic controllers to help manage the complexities of their role. This system will use digital twinning and machine learning technologies, and will include tools and methods that promote safe and trustworthy use of AI.

Louise previously worked at the University of Exeter in several roles supporting research.
