I’m Adam, one half of PS Research.

We work with public and not-for-profit organisations to ask the questions that matter and find the answers that make a difference.


Hi, I’m Adam.

I went freelance in 2018 after nearly a decade working in local authorities and doing research in the public sector. A good few years of which were spent managing an in-house research agency.

I’m a Certified Member of the MRS, which recognises the qualifications and experience of senior researchers. Fancy.

Things seem to be going ok. In 2019, I was named the UK’s New Freelancer of the Year by IPSE (the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed).

I’m based in East Lancashire. I like dogs, enjoy running and… actually, that’s probably enough.
