Career overview

After a 1st class Honours degree in Physics from Manchester University in 1978, Dr Langensiepen stayed on to study a PhD in theoretical particle physics. After completing this in 1981, she went into industry, and after a short period as a nuclear power physicist, became a software designer in Ferranti. She remained there for nine years, eventually becoming the software manager for the Trident submarine simulation programme. She was then a contract engineer for five years, undertaking contracts as diverse as implementing device drivers for satellite TV decoders to acting as design authority on major military and civil real time projects. Dr Langensiepen joined Nottingham Trent University in 1996 and continued her interests in real-time systems and software design in general, which have influenced her teaching and research.

Research areas

Dr Langensiepen is a member of the Computational Intelligence and Applications Research Group (CIA)
