Projects per year
My experience of research, doctoral supervision and publication span the following:

I am currently Director of Studies for the professional Doctorate in Policy Research and Practice (DPRP) at the Institute of Policy Research (IPR), and a founding director of Bath Social and Development Research Ltd - a social enterprise set up in 2016 to promote better qualitative and multi-method impact evaluation. I am NOT currently accepting new PhD students.
