At The Sweet Setup:
Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.
Today’s victim, er, interviewee:
I spend my life trying to figure out how the world works, both as a senior research leader at RAND Europe and as the father of two small boys. I’m based in Cambridge UK and my job is to help improve policy-making using research, which at the broadest level helps improve how society works. I specialise in medical research: how best to organise it, and how to estimate what benefits society can expect from it. I co-direct the Policy Research In Science and Medicine unit, and I’ve also done bits of research on electric cars and mapping organised crime. My research is available free from the RAND website. My more digestible thoughts are on Twitter.
My New Year’s resolution was to write about taking a researcher’s approach to life in general at ThinkingItThrough. It’s June and there are two posts. I’m counting that as success.
