Dr Caitlin Bentley joined the 3A Institute, Australian National University, in July 2018. Dr Bentley has assisted in the development of a new applied science through her role as Research Fellow, teaching the 3Ai Master of Applied Cybernetics.

Her focus, in addition to assisting with developing and teaching the Masters, includes case study research on cyber-physical systems and how to apply findings to the real world. She is particularly interested in applications of AI for social good, focusing on how to make cyber-physical systems more inclusive.
