About me

I am a journalist and academic. Yep, I do both. Take a look at my website to learn more about me - www.richardfern/ I've got a proven track record in investigative journalism and academic research. This means that I apply to high standards of academic methodology, the practical needs to newspaper reporting. Oh, and I'm teaching the next generation of journalists too (at both Sheffield University school of Journalism, and at Birmingham City University Media School).
