David is a researcher based in the Social Evaluation and Research Unit (SREU), Faculty of Education, Law and Social Sciences (ELSS), Birmingham City University. He works in a number of disciplines including Higher Education research and Prisoner Health research. His other love is popular culture and he has recently completed an MPhil exploring how music fans organise online sources devoted to the object of their fandom. He is currently developing a PhD proposal to develop this thesis linking it to work on sites of popular music heritage.
David is charged with cementing links between ELSS and PME with a view to encouraging cross-faculty collaboration and, ultimately, generating research income.
