Dr Robert Mullins is an Associate Investigator at the University of Queensland node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making & Society (ADM+S).

Robert has been a lecturer in law at the University of Queensland since 2015.

Prior to taking up his position at the University of Queensland he completed a BPhil in Philosophy and a DPhil in Law at the University of Oxford.

He was a lecturer in law at St Anne’s College, Oxford from 2014-2015. Rob’s research interests lie in legal philosophy, broadly construed.

His recent published work has looked at the implications of accounts of the meaning and use of deontic language developed by logicians and linguists for the understanding of law.

More recently, Rob has begun to consider accounts of legal reasoning developed in other cognate fields, especially by scholars working in artificial intelligence and law.
