Simone Stumpf received a PhD in Computer Science in 2001 and a BSc in Computer Science with Cognitive Science in 1996, both at University College London. She joined City University London as Lecturer in 2009. Previously, she worked at Oregon State University (USA) and University College London as a Research Fellow/Manager. Simone also has professional agency experience as a User Experience Architect, working on web presence, e-commerce and social networking projects.

Dr Simone Stumpf's core research focus has been on the use of intelligent systems by end users, end-user programming and information management systems. At University College London (UCL) she was involved in a large-scale user trial of biometric security systems and contributed to an EPSRC-funded project to design and implement a system used by security staff to detect and prevent theft by employees. At Oregon State University, she worked on the TaskTracer project (as part of the CALO research project) to develop an intelligent user interface system, targeted at information workers, that combined the automatic tracking of users' information resources and the application of machine learning to enable activity-based personal information management. More recently, she has focused on end-user interactions with systems that use machine learning algorithms.
