I started QUIDDITY to continue my interest in methodologically innovative research, particularly in the use and analysis of naturally-occurring data (and especially language) in research, typically using interpretive qualitative methods such as discourse analysis and ethnography. I am interested in solving research problems through a focus on people’s attitudes, behaviour and culture in context, whatever the context.
I am particularly interested in unpacking the language of consumer identities, organisational cultures and public political discourse.
I cannot promise to solve every knotty problem you might have but I can guarantee a unique perspective.
