Ms. Ciara McFerran, B.A.(Hons.)(Lpool), M.A.(Lpool)

Office: Room 403, Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences


Ciara has worked as a researcher in the private, public and voluntary sectors for over seven years, since 2004. As a result, her experience spans a range of subject areas and approaches. She began working for Liverpool John Moores University, following her BA in Human Geography at the same institution in 2003. There she worked on two projects: a HEFCE funded project researching the circumstances of young asylum seekers in Liverpool and for Base Line Research and Survey, a study of young people’s perceptions of Liverpool European Capital of Culture, commissioned by the Impacts 08 research programme. In 2006 Ciara gained an MA in Research Methodology and Social Policy at the University of Liverpool and subsequently began working in voluntary sector research. Her experience spans four charities—Barnardo’s, RNLI, Refugee Action and CAADA. 

Most recently, Ciara worked on multiple applied research projects for SERIO, a commercially-focused research consultancy at Plymouth University, UK. Part of her time was dedicated to providing research intelligence to the European funded Unlocking Potential business support programme in Cornwall. Other commissions she worked on came from clients such as the UK National Screening Committee, UK Fairness Commission, Plymouth City Council, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and Plymouth Culture Board. Most reports resulting from research commissions were internal and confidential. 

Ciara joined the Information Policy and Governance team in January 2014 as Research Support Officer and supports various FP7 and H2020 projects involving or coordinated by the Department. These include for example CITYCoP, CARISMAND, MAPPING and EVIDENCE.
