- Short Biography
I have worked in social research in Scotland for more than 20 years since graduating from Glasgow Caledonian University with a degree in Social Sciences. This has included periods in academic research, in local government, urban regeneration and commercial contract research. I have an MSc in Social and Public Policy from the University of Edinburgh.
I have worked on research projects involving a range of research methods across a wide range of policy areas including transport choices, driver behaviour, customer satisfaction, housing, urban policy and rural affairs. My particular interest is in research methodology, especially the design, management and analysis of large population surveys. I have been closely involved in the design and assessment of Scotland major social surveys including the Scottish Household Survey, which I managed from 2000 to 2012, the Scottish House Condition Survey, and the Scottish Crime and Victimisation Survey.
