Hayley is a mixed methods researcher and has experience in conducting research using in-depth interviews, focus groups, and developing and testing survey questions through cognitive interviews.
During the Placement Year Hayley worked on a number of varied projects, such as an investigation of BME satisfaction with social care services, as well as usability testing of online survey questions using eye-tracking technology.
Hayley is a Sociology graduate from the University of Surrey. During the final year of her degree she focused on the relevance of ethics frameworks for online research to young adults; an extension of the work she did with the Graduate Trainees at NatCen which explored people’s views of research using social media.
