Dr Mark Summerfield
Web Applications Developer
Commercial Development Team
- Computer Centre
I joined the Web Services Team in 2005 and am one of the Web Application Developers in the Commercial Development Team.
I have a B.Mus(Hons) from Royal Holloway, a PGCE from Reading University and a PhD in music theory from the Open University ('The Construction of Closure and Cadence in Gustav Mahler’s Ninth Symphony and Das Lied von der Erde').
After completing my first music degree I worked as a programmer for a software house using Visual Basic 6 and SQL Server 6.5. Following that, I worked for a number of years in the University's Clinical Trials Unit where I worked on secure web-based data entry for clinical trials (using ASP.NET 1.0 and Visual Basic.NET). I have also tutored undergraduate music theory as an Associate Lecturer with the Open University.
