An Introduction to Research Data Management Skills with Dr Curtis Sharma

Simply put, research data is anything that helps to eventually form the basis of your research output. The integrity of our research outputs therefore depends on the integrity of our data. This is one reason why Increased importance is being placed on research data management (RDM). Managing your research data well brings other benefits, however. It helps in structuring your research project, keeping your data safe and secure, making it easier to share data during and after your project, and it is simply good academic practice. In these sessions we will explore what we mean by RDM, looking at storage and backup, organisation, archiving, and sharing. In the first session we will work to achieve a strong basic understanding of RDM. In the second session, we’ll look at these in more detail.

Research in Challenging Environments new Thu 10 Nov 2022   14:00 Finished

Cambridge ESRC DTP is pleased to offer a training session with our annual lecture speaker Professor Pete Fussey Training will take place on Thursday 10th November at 2pm in the Nihon Room at Pembroke College. We are delighted that prior to his talk at 5pm (in the Old Library at Pembroke College), Professor Fussey will be running a workshop focusing on working in challenging research environments. Drawing on his experience of researching in difficult to access environments – including among organised criminal actors in London, senior security practitioners and in conducting ethnographies of covert surveillance practices – Professor Fussey will lead this interactive workshop to support doctoral students facing some of these issues. In doing so, this session will cover a range of relevant issues including sensitivities, ethics, responsibilities to participants and strategies for engagement. Students are also encouraged to contribute their own experiences to the workshop and a reflection of the challenges they have faced.

Professor Fussey’s research focuses on surveillance, digital sociology, algorithmic justice, human rights, intelligence oversight, technology and policing, and urban studies. He has published widely across these areas. He is a director of the Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy (CRISP). Professor Fussey is a regular commentator in national and international media and he has worked with and advised central and regional governments in the UK, Europe and Asia on a number of issues including the regulation of surveillance, public order policing and the security and social implications of urban mega-events.

The Reflexive Researcher new Fri 10 Jun 2022   12:00 Finished

Dr Pallawi Sinha focuses on reflection in research. By sharing some of her own experiences working with some of the most vulnerable communities in India, Dr Sinha explains how central reflexivity is in research. The workshop considers how deeply invested we each are in our research questions and the very individual ‘toolkits’ we bring to our research, grounded in our life histories, to build understanding of how reflection and researcher-reflexivity confront and overcome incongruities, disparities and barriers that underscore research.

Dr Pallawi Sinha will deliver a 45 minute seminar for all students. There will then be an opportunity for a 30 minute group session at which we invite students who wish to engage and actively participate.
