As part of his duties in Renmin, Dr Nunes will continue to support and help develop the areas of qualitative research methods and information systems change management. Dr Nunes already has some active engagement with PhD students and young staff members in these areas and is also involved in a number of research proposals to the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSCF) and the British Academy. Dr Nunes has found the experience of working with staff and students in Renmin University extremely rewarding and positive and looks forward to visiting China again in March 2016.
This is not the first professional engagement of Dr Nunes with Chinese Universities, having been previously Visiting Professor at the Information Schools of Wuhan University and Nanjing University as well as at the Business School of Wuhan Huazhong University. The collaboration with Wuhan University has been particularly productive, resulting in a number of referred academic journal and international conference publications and co-investigator roles in one NSCF and one Wuhan University funded research projects.
