Dr. A. (Aimee) van Wynsberghe

Profile

Aimee’s research centres on the topics of: care ethics, robot ethics, responsible robotics, and values in design. Her previous studies explored the use of care ethics in the design space of care robots and in 2015 she was awarded a Veni grant to study the ethical issues related to service robots. Since working at Delft Aimee has begun to explore the topic of robots in humanitarian contexts and robots for the protection of the environment, as well as translating robot ethics into policy recommendations.

Aimee has taught a variety of ethics courses and at TU Delft is involved in the course on Ethics and Aerospace Engineering. Aimee is also organizer of the TU Delft IDEA League summer school in Responsible Robotics (Aug 2017). 

NWO Veni project, ‘Addressing Ethics Issues of the Service Robot Revolution’. Aimee is researching the ethical issues of a variety of service robots in both professional and personal contexts (e.g. robots in stores and robots in the home respectively) and will use this analysis to help create a framework for providing designers and engineers with ethics advice to be taken into design.
