ADRC Wales Research Support Officers
Cardiff University

In my role as a researcher and user support officer I undertake activities that contribute to the running of a high quality user support service that ensures that analytical opportunities provided by ADRC Wales are accessible to researchers from across social science disciplines.

I work with large complex datasets to develop and enhance sources on behalf of the research community, as well as assessing and planning support for researchers who wish to access data through the ADRC. I also perform my own research, contributing to the high quality research activity of ADRC Wales. As a quantitative researcher I have worked on various projects, including ESRC funded multi-university projects using the Workplace Employment Relations Survey, and a European Commission FP7 funded project, Coordinating for Cohesion in the Public Sector of the Future (COCOPS).

I have also gained teaching experience in both large and small group settings, focused on research methods, business ethics and personnel management/HRM at Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University.

My qualifications include an MA in Globalisation, Identity and Technology (Nottingham Trent University, 2004), and an MSc in Social Science Research Methods (Cardiff University, 2007). I am currently completing my PhD thesis, which considers trade union revitalisation and the trade union learning agenda in Wales using qualitative and quantitative data.

I am also working on research for the ADRC including research in ESF skill funding outcomes, trade unions in Wales, adult education.
