Dr Tim Horberry
Senior Research Associate (part time)
- BA (Hons), MSc, MIEHF, PhD
Tim is a Senior Research Associate (part time) in the EDC. He is also Associate Professor of Human Factors at the Minerals Industry Safety and Health Centre, University of Queensland in Australia.
Dr Horberry’s background is in transport and industrial safety; this includes equipment safety, design of new technologies, human error, psychological road audits and driver performance.
At Cambridge, Tim holds an EC Marie Curie Fellowship ‘Safety in Design Ergonomics’. This ongoing research aims to better integrate safe design, human factors and risk management. It will be applied to mobile mining equipment, transport safety and potentially medical equipment.
Dr Horberry currently supervises 7 PhD students in Australia. He has over 100 peer-reviewed publications, including 4 books.
His research interests are: Human Factors, Safety in Design / Prevention through Design, Cognitive Ergonomics, Transport Safety and Industrial & Mining Safety.
