Lisa Payne


Having spent most of my working life as a university lecturer of computing, mostly at Coventry University, ultimately as a Principal Lecturer, I secured an opportunity to undertake an educational research project through full-time PhD study, whilst retaining links into the School of Computing, Electronics and Maths as an Honorary Lecturer in Computing.
