Dr Dan Chamberlain is a sociologist and social network research methodologist, currently working as a Research Fellow with the Centre for Social Impact, UNSW. I have been fortunate to work with many researchers in diverse fields, including public health, public policy and management, youth studies, education, criminology, construction, and evaluation. A large part of my research is focused on inter-organisational networks, and how the structure of relations between organisations affects the functioning of the network at the individual and network levels.
I teach a course on Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis with ACSPRI: https://www.acspri.org.au/courses/introduction-social-network-analysis-social-researchers. The course is designed for people who are new to social network analysis, and are interested to see how it can be applied to their research interests. It covers research design, data structures, visualisation, and analysis, and is structured with qualitative researchers and mixed methods approaches in mind.
Most recently I have worked as a Research Fellow at La Trobe University, working with the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS), and with The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre (TAPPC) at the Sax Institute.
