Samia Abdi

Senior Consultant – Human Factors

Throughout my career I have provided human factors support to systems engineering projects to ensure that people are considered as much a part of the system as the hardware and software.

My biography

I am a Chartered Ergonomist with over 20 years' experience.

I apply a wide variety of human factors and human factors integration techniques and methodologies across all seven human factors areas: manpower, personnel, training, engineering, health hazards, safety and social and organisational. This makes my job highly interesting, challenges me to be creative and adaptable. I am always learning.

I specialise in human computer interaction (HCI), usability and user experience/user interface (UX/UI) design and evaluation - recently being applied to robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and autonomous systems.

Much of my career has been working on defence projects although I also work in the transport and nuclear sectors. I specialise in design, development and assessment of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and cyber security systems, processes, and products. I was the author of the HCI Technical Guide associated with Defence Standard 00-251 "Human Factors Integration in Defence Systems".
