Speaker: Gail Ollis

Researcher & Lecturer in Cyberpsychology @bournemouthuni

Gail Ollis was a professional software developer for 20 years before asking “Why did they do THAT!?” one time too many and going off to take a psychology degree to try to find out. This led on to a PhD at Bournemouth University, U.K., where she has recently submitted her doctoral thesis Helping programmers to help each other: a technique to facilitate understanding among professional software developers. Like many postgraduate researchers, Gail took on part-time teaching work while studying for the PhD. This uncovered a love of teaching that rapidly spiralled into a new career. Gail is now a full-time lecturer at Bournemouth, bringing her interdisciplinary skills to teaching both programming and cyberpsychology.
