Dr Matt Jenkins
Teaching Fellow (Geography) and Visiting Researcher (CURDS)
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a part-time Teaching Fellow in the Geography Department and also a Visiting Fellow in the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies. My research is interested in official statistics as social processes, thinking through what it is we do when we count. To date, I've mainly looked at statistics around well-being and happiness, so I also have a sideline in considering official representations of emotion and ways of being.
In 2018 I will be working with the artist Paula Turner on the Catherine Cookson Foundation-funded 'Near and Far' project, working with the children of Marine Park Primary School, their families and those living on their estate.
My office hours for the second semester are 9-11 on Wednesday and 9-10 on Thursday. Drop me an email before if you can, and I'll tell you where I'll be (and can arrange to be in a room with the right software if yours is a stats question).
