  2. Capacity Building: Theory Hub: Creating an online theory resource
    Theories are formulated to explain, predict, and understand phenomena and, in many cases, to challenge and extend existing knowledge within the limits of critical bounding assumptions. In social sciences, theories are typically taught as part of modules or utilised in research dissertations. Still despite the opportunities that students have to engage with theories, their exposure is relatively narrow and confined to widely-used theories. Following experiences of teaching/supervision and interaction with PGR and PGT students, this project's aim is to create an online TheoryHub that covers a wide range of theories and act as a starting point for theory exploration in different research and T&L contexts.

  10. Research: Privacy-Aware Cloud Ecosystems (PACE)
    Many people using cloud computing services often entrust their data and identity without realising that service providers may share the data with other services, such as analytics and advertisers. This is likely to be greatly exacerbated by the expansion of internet-connected devices. This interdisciplinary project aims to address challenges facing the capacity of users to give informed consent to the use, sharing and re-purposing of data through a mobile software ‘container’ that will securely log all access instances, thereby improving transparency, creating an audit trail of providers and facilitating greater trust between users and service providers. The project, involving Cardiff University, Newcastle University and UCL, will develop novel computational methods to better ensure that cloud providers can enhance data privacy and will provide the basis for conforming to recently-introduced General Data Protection Regulation requirements.
