He is an interdisciplinary researcher, studying innovation and its societal co-construction, on micro (firms, research organisations, practices), meso (networks, actors) and macro level (policy, interventions).

He deploys strategic multi-sited ethnography (Biography of Artefacts and Practices Approach), social network analysis and participatory action research and he is working with external stakeholders, both in industry (SMEs, corporations), policy and intermediation (STFC, Innovate UK, OECD, etc.) and with general public (in public engagement).
