Emma Anderson

Assistant Professor

Department: Computer and Information Sciences

After working as a web and database programmer on Oracle applications at a software house in Newcastle, I joined the University as a Senior Lecturer in Computing in 2002.  

My teaching responsibility lies principally in web development and database programming.

I have research interests in computer aided learning, student group work, group assessment and peer mentoring.

A full list of my publications is available on Northumbria Research Link
