Dr Emily Winter

Lecturer in Computer Science


Emily's expertise lies in the socio-technical aspects of Software Engineering. She is interested in the perceptions and attitudes of software developers about the technologies that they build and the tools that they use, particularly the increasing role of automation within software engineering.

Before becoming a Lecturer in SCC, Emily worked as a Senior Research Associate on the Fixie Project, investigating developer attitudes to automatic program tools (see https://twitter.com/the_fixie). She has also been involved in researching the role of human values in software engineering (see http://www.valuesincomputing.org/) and in work on diversity and inclusion in computing education.

Emily has been based in SCC since 2018, following a background in the social sciences, and she is particularly interested in the role that qualitative methods and social scientific insights can play within software engineering.
