Research work is not always as glamorous as portrayed in the latest TV drama, where the answers are found in a sudden flash of insight, justice or fate. However, in reality, research is not unlike trying to put together a puzzle in the dark. Progress is a slow and risky endeavor requiring adherence to a methodological path that is fraught with false assumptions, long hours and dead ends.

 

If that wasn’t hard enough, researchers also need to administer staff, write reports, find new funding sources and present their findings to their peers and the public at large. Which is why institutions focus their attention on project management, experiment design and statistical analysis of qualitative and quantitative data.

 

While facts and figures are essential aspects of their work, what is often overlooked is the need to clearly communicate the impact and importance of research findings. I can help organizations to succeed by developing report and policy proposals to get their messages across to a broader audience and persuade funding agencies to continue supporting their work.
