Dr Mohammed Al-Husban is a senior lecturer/researcher in the School of Media Arts and Technology. Mohammed teaches on courses within the business computing programme and is a member of the computing team.

He has many peer-reviewed publications in journals, international conferences and national conferences, as well as a selection of book chapters.

Mohammed's current role as a senior lecturer in the School of Media Arts and Technology involves delivering seminars and lectures across a variety of computer science and IT units. This has provided him with extensive experience teaching undergraduate levels, which he finds extremely valuable and highly enjoyable. He enjoys motivating and communicating with students and finds it very rewarding helping them to achieve their potential.

His PhD is about web services and data interoperability in the context of public service integration in electronic government. He has produced a technical framework to aid towards indexing and further integrating public services. He is working on a massive dataset that has emerged from a recent field study, and looked particularly at integrating specific online services and data sharing between service providers. His PhD resulted in providing a whole new personalisation data framework to be used across different government departments, so citizens can interact with the eGovernment portal as they interact with digital social media, in order to enhance citizen participation and involvement towards a more digitally and modern society.
