Mohammad Othman | Doctoral Trainee

Mohammad Othman

Mohammad Othman is a PhD candidate at Newcastle University in the Computing Science School. His research looks at how crowdsourcing micro-tasks and quality measures can be designed to support the collection and analysis of speech (see Speeching project) and eye tracking data as well as provide expert-like feedback that enables service receivers to self- monitor- and- train relevant skills (i.e. Speech like in Speeching, and Hazard Perception like in the currently going eye-tracking project). Mohammad received his BSc. in computer science from Jordan in 2005, and MSc. in Network Systems from the University of Sunderland in 2007.

For the industry, Mohammad is currently an IT Consultant with more than 12 years of computer programming and analysis experience. He has been working with Exis Technologies, the International Maritime Organisation and number of the largest shipping lines (like ZIM, COSCO and Maersk) for almost a decade to design and develop systems regulating the shipping of dangerous goods by sea and minimising their danger while in transit.
