Room 15J17B Belfast BT15 1ED



Jack is one of the Postdoctoral Research Associates for the Real Complaints project. Jack’s PhD, at Loughborough University, analysed how people communicate during disagreements in public spaces using an approach called Conversation Analysis.

Jack has mainly worked on how people argue, disagree, and complain about each other in different contexts. Before this, Jack examined how decisions about treatment were made in diabetes consultations. He is currently involved in studies on arguments about Brexit between members of the public and politicians, on accusations of Mansplaining, on how resistance is manifest in talk, and on how people use technology during face-to-face interactions.

He is a co-founder of the Remote Data Sessions, the Resistance in talk-in-interaction network, co-organises the DARGchive series, and in 2019 was awarded the Overall Impact award at Loughborough University, and won the I’m a Scientist! Get me out of here! Competition in the British Psychological Society’s ’Society Zone’.
