Research Funding

I recently received news that my PhD would receive funding from the Irish Research Council through its Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme.   Maybe I will finally be able to buy a new laptop…


My research has been changing and developing based on the methodology I am following and interviews with participants.  When using grounded theory the main concern of the participants is key.  While this leads away from preconceived notions and theories and ideas that the researcher may wish to uncover, it leads, hopefully, to a result that offers a theory suited to its supposed uses and usable in practical applications.

I will post a more detailed description of the various stages my research has gone through to get it to this point in the coming days.
