In terms of methodology, I gravitate toward qualitative, interpretive modes, but am open to exploring mixed-methods. I enjoy working in a team of researchers and with researchers who have expertise with quantitative analysis, from diverse disciplines.
I have a professional social media presence and am supportive of open access publications, including electronic journals with creative commons licensing, and free ebook publications. I have gained significant experience as a reviewer and editor in recent times and am keen to build upon these experiences.
