She co-leads the Policy and Governance Special Interest Group as part of Beyond Imagination, and is carrying out research related to design for policy, particularly in the context of policy for new technologies.

Naomi has published papers on topics including the governance of smart cities, livestreaming of fan conventions, the potentials of IoT for food safety, and how to use zombie apocalypse modelling for epidemiology education.
