Dr Paul Stoneman
In the role of POP Research Fellow (2019-2020), Paul was primarily focused on WPI – Work Package I – which maps patents across time and place. Together with Kat (PI) and Claudia (RA), he undertook statistical clustering of large quantities of qualitative patent data to detect and classify underlying discourse and narrative structures. The topic modelling emerging from this first work (WP1) package helps to steer and support he emerging thematic analyse emerging in WP2.
Paul Stoneman joined the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths in 2017 having previously worked for the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) as a Senior Research Fellow, and the University of Surrey as a lecturer in research methodology. He is currently a reviewer for SAGE online methods resources and is co-editor of the recent methods textbook Researching Social Life, 4th edition (with Nigel Gilbert).
