University of Leeds (UK)
I am an internationally recognised scholar in the field of qualitative secondary analysis, lead editor of the forthcoming publication ‘Qualitative Secondary Analysis’ (SAGE), and in which I have developed innovative methods training. As a Senior Fellow of the next phase of the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM), I am responsible for all Qualitative Longitudinal and Qualitative Secondary Analysis research methods training for all UK social scientists for this five year period of its investment by the ESRC. This expertise builds out of my role as the Director of the Timescapes Archive, a world-leading specialist digital data repository for qualitative longitudinal research. Currently, I am Editor in Chief of the BSA/SAGE Journal: Sociological Research Online. I lead the MA Qualitative Research Methods for the School of Sociology and Social Policy.
