Research Overview

I am a PhD student, funded by the ESRC, with research interests in teaching-learning in Higher Education, public engagement with science and statistics, and the sociology of knowledge. At present I am researching how research methods are conceptualised and performed across Higher Education Social Science disciplines. I am particularly interested in how the thinking about, and teaching/learning are woven together to produce disciplinary and cross-disciplinary narratives about what research methods are.
