Biography

Wendy Hall, DBE, FRS, FREng is Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton and was Dean of the Faculty of Physical Science and Engineering from 2010 to 2014. She was Head of the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) from 2002 to 2007 and is now a director of the Web Science Institute.

One of the first computer scientists to undertake serious research in multimedia and hypermedia, she has been at its forefront ever since. The influence of her work has been significant in many areas including digital libraries, the development of the Semantic Web, and the emerging research discipline of Web Science.

In addition to playing a prominent role in the development of her subject, she continues to shape science and engineering policy and education. Through her leadership roles on national and international bodies, she has shattered many glass ceilings, readily deploying her position to promote the role of women in science, engineering and technology, and acting as an important role model for others.

She became a Dame Commander of the British Empire in the 2009, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in the same year.
Wendy was elected President of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) in July 2008, and was the first person from outside North America to hold this position.
