About

Hello, my name is Dr Benjamin Gorman.
I am a Lecturer in Computer Science at Bournemouth University.


An portrait image of Benjamin Gorman wearing a plaid shirt. I graduated with a First Class (Honours) B.Sc. in Applied Computing from the University of Dundee in 2012.

After taking a short break from academia to travel around Australia, I returned to Dundee in 2014 to begin my PhD in Computer Science (HCI) supervised by Dr David Flatla. My PhD research focused on working with people with hearing loss to develop technology to enhance their acquisition of speechreading (commonly called lipreading). I successfully defended my thesis in December 2017 and then held a Sessional Lecturer position at Dundee until the summer of 2018.

Since November 2018, I have been appointed as a Lecturer in Computer Science at Bournemouth University on the South-East coast of England. In my role at Bournemouth, I am continuing to research aspects of Accessibility within HCI.

If you are interested in working together on a project, let's have a chat.
