New Fellow

We welcome Simon C. Stobart, BA (Hons) PhD who has been elected a Fellow of the Institution. Dr. Stobart began working as a programmer with Commercial Union while studying part time for his first degree. This was followed by a brief period as a part time lecturer in computing at New College, Durham. The remainder of his distinguished academic career to date has been spent on the staff of the University of Sunderland (an IAP Education Partner). Working initially part time as Research Assistant and Lecturer while studying for his PhD, Dr. Stobart has taken on increasing departmental responsibilities – he is currently Principal Lecturer in Computing with co-ordinating responsibility for the postgraduate programmes. He is widely published and engages in a considerable amount of consultancy work, both with local businesses and internationally.
