Communicating Research across Interdisciplinary Boundaries

Dhruv Sookhoo, Visiting Lecturer in the School, has been invited to present to peers at the annual North East Doctoral Training Centre Conference on the 24 March 2017.  The conference theme is communicating research creatively and effectively across interdisciplinary boundaries, to translate research value from academia to business and government. 

Dhruv’s contribution will be informed by the strategies he has adopted to enrich his doctoral research exploring the perspectives of architects and planners on residential design quality, by situating in the field of practice as Metropolitan Workshop’s Researcher in Residence. Other speakers include: Dr Anna Maerker (King’s College London), Dr Divya Toila-Kelly (Durham University), Dr Kayleigh Carr (UK Government).

The conference will be attended by doctoral students currently funded by the Economics and Social Research Council, through the North East Doctoral Training Centre, directed by Maggie Roe (Newcastle University) and Professor Cheryl McEwan (Durham University).  The North East Doctoral Training Centre is soon to expand to include other universities across the North East and Northern Ireland as NINE DTP.
