Blog

Welcome to the Suffolk Research Blog

The Suffolk Research Blog is a space for all research-active staff and anyone else interested in maximising research impact in any discipline to share their current work. 

Our research makes a real difference to people’s lives and influences policy and society as well as informing the teaching that we deliver. The blog will showcase news, research events, good practice, and the latest research at the University of Suffolk.

If you would like to contribute or have ideas for the blog please contact Olumide Adisa at o.adisa@uos.ac.uk. We warmly welcome research-focused contributions.

The views and opinions expressed in this blog are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the University of Suffolk.
