Jack Kneeshaw - Service Manager
Jack joined the UKDA in 2000, where he has worked in the Support Services section and, since 2003, on the ESDS. He currently manages the ESDS Longitudinal and ESDS International Microdata services. Within the SRN, Jack is responsible for overseeing the expansion and development of the SQB and integrating that resource both into the wider SRN and the ESDS. He also manages the SRNís overall web presence and works closely with SRN partners to co-ordinate online content.
In recent years, Jack has spent much of his time supporting the users, data collectors, managers and funders of the UKís major longitudinal studies, working on projects to make these data more accessible to potential and new users and also to find solutions to managing controlled access to the more sensitive data that the longitudinal studies have collected. He has a particular interest in online data and metadata browsing tools. Jack has a Ph.D. from the Department of Government, University of Essex and his research interests focus on the formation, structure and stability of social and political opinions/attitudes.
