Biography

Nigel joined the University in 1992, and was promoted to Professor in Applied Psychology in 2007. He is currently Acting Dean of the Graduate School, on secondment for the academic year 206/17 from his role as Associate Dean for Research, School of Human and Health Sciences. Until August 2016 he was Centre Director for the Centre for Applied Psychological and Health Research.

Prior to joining the University of Huddersfield, Nigel completed a PhD in Organisational Psychology at the University of Sheffield (awared 1990) and worked as a Research Associate at the Centre for Primary Care Research, University of Manchester, from 1990 to 1992.

Nigel is well-known for his work in developing methods for applied qualitative research. His substantive interests include inter-professional collaboration in health and social care, nature and well-being and patient and carer experiences of chronic and life-limiting illness.

Research and Scholarship

Nigel has a long-standing interest in applied qualitative research methods. In particular he is internationally known for his work on the Template Analysis style of thematic analysis – his book (with Dr Jo Brooks) “Template Analysis for Business and Management Students” is due for publication in late 2016. He has a website devoted to the technique here: http://www.hud.ac.uk/hhs/research/template-analysis/

He is also the co-author of “Interviews in Qualitative Research” (with Prof Christine Horrocks; second edition due in 2017), and co-editor (with Dr Jo Brooks) of “Applied Qualitative Psychology” (due for publication 2017). Nigel also has a particular interest in the use of visual methods in qualitative research, especially the Pictor technique which he has developed with current and former Huddersfield colleagues. While he uses a variety of methodological approaches, he is especially interested in phenomenology and Personal Construct Psychology.

Over the last decade, Nigel has led several projects for Macmillan Cancer Support, looking at out-of-hours services, collaborative working between professionals, and patient/carer experiences of services. He also has an interest in the relationship between engagement with nature and the natural environment and well-being; he has led projects on the experience of allotment gardening and the evaluation of a local scheme to help people with emotional problems through contact with nature.
