Dr Huseyin Seker

Associate Professor

Department: Computer and Information Sciences

I joined the University of Northumbria in November 2014 as a Reader in Computer Science. Prior to that, I worked for De Montfort University, Universities of Bradford and Leicester. I am the Business and Engagement Lead for the Department of Computer Science and Digital Technologies.

PGR Supervision

I supervise several PhD students and would be happy to work with those who are interested in my research areas. Please see my personal website
