Dr Emma Uprichard is Associate Professor and Deputy Director at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, University of Warwick, UK.
She is director of the Warwick Q-Step Centre (funded by the Nuffield Foundation, ESRC and HEFCE); this is one of fifteen Q-Step Centres across the UK, developed as a strategic response to the shortage of quantitatively-skilled social science graduates.
She is currently PI of the ESRC Seminar Series, Complexity and Method in the Social Sciences. Her work is driven by the methodological challenge of studying complex social systems across time and space specifically for the purpose of policy planning and practice.
Her substantive research interests revolve around studying change and continuity in relation to: big data for policy; cities; food; time; childhood; and time-space methodologies.
