I am a senior lecturer in social science research methods at Birkbeck, University of London, in the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy, and director of postgraduate programmes in Social Research.

I teach quantitative research methods and theorising social research. My research focuses on mental health (e.g., evaluating psychological therapies) and rethinking boundaries between quantitative and qualitative research.

Here are some books I enjoyed; music I’m listening to; a poem inspired by the later stages of the PhD (some advice on choosing a PhD programme and writing up a thesis); quotations and poems; some lyrics; links to software I use; places I like in London; a smile machine; how about a little game of bingo for when you’re listening to politicians on the news?
