Patrick Sturgis has been director of the National Centre for Research Methods since 2009. From June 2019 Patrick will take on a new role as Professor of Quantitative Social Science in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics when NCRM leadership responsibilities will be taken up by Professor Gabriele Durrant who has been the deputy director of the centre since 2015.
As NCRM director Patrick helped to build the partnership between Southampton, Manchester and Edinburgh universities, represented NCRM at numerous evets, meetings and lectures, and contributed to countless methodological outputs and resources (e.g. publications, audio and video podcast and the very popular online learning resources). The NCRM team would like to thank Patrick for his work and wish him all the best for his future projects and ambitions. In the same time, we would like to welcome Gabriele and we look forward to working with her.
