Luke Sloan: 2019 Dillwyn medal for Social Sciences, Economics and Business

Dr Stuart Fox and Dr Luke Sloan, both from Cardiff University School of Social Sciences, were awarded the Dillwyn medals for Social Sciences, Economics and Business this year.

Dr Luke Sloan was recognised for his work which has explored how social media, particularly Twitter, can be used to further social research. His work in this area is particularly noteworthy because it goes beyond asking when Twitter can tell us something about the world to ask more complex questions about the ethics and methodology of this research.

Dr Sloan said:

“I am humbled to receive this award. This is a wonderful surprise and very much appreciated”.
