I am a Research Fellow working in the University of Exeter's Social Innovation Group (SIG). I use qualitative methods to explore how existing academic research can be adapted for implementation in specific places and communities. The approaches I use focus on building a detailed understanding of contextual influences. These include political, cultural and socio-economic factors. My previous research has involved working with voluntary sector organisations, primary healthcare providers, small-medium sized enterprises, non-governmental organisations and local / national government bodies.
