My research approach is primarily (but not exclusively) qualitative. Wherever possible I aim to join participative approaches with my social science training and work with the people who take part in the research to explore and document their experience and knowledge about their lives. Theoretically I draw primarily on environmental and social psychology theory.
I have extensive experience of commissioning research and evaluation within a strategic policy context and so have a good understanding of the need to develop evidenced based policy. I am able to support organizations to develop research projects within this context.
