Robert Dingwall is a consulting sociologist, providing research and advisory services particularly in relation to organizational strategy, public engagement and knowledge transfer. He is also a part-time professor in the School of Social Sciences at Nottingham Trent University. His career has mainly been spent in research, spanning a wide range of topics in health care, law, and science and technology studies, reflected in over 100 peer reviewed papers together with numerous books, reports and book chapters. Much of this work has crossed traditional disciplinary boundaries, involving collaboration with health professionals, lawyers, engineers, and scholars from other humanities and social science disciplines. He has a long-standing interest in social research ethics and is currently involved with a working party of the Academy of Social Sciences that is trying to develop a more proportionate approach to regulation. He will also be commenting on strategic issues for research in universities, drawing on his work as co-editor of a Handbook on Research Management for SAGE.
