Current research activities

My research focuses on identity and my thesis, 'Development of the teaching-self in research-intensive universities' concentrated on the self-understanding of contemporary innovative academics. Therefore, central to this study is one's sense of self; the self narritives of multiple subjectivities and experiences. The study uses visualisations and Jungian focal points to emphasise academic identity.

Stephen's also wants to focus on the identities of healthcare professionals from across medical disciplines.
