Jon Hindmarsh specialises in video-based field studies of work and organising. His research focuses on communication and collaboration in a range of settings, but most commonly within sites of healthcare delivery. In addition he engages in interdisciplinary research to explore the potential for these studies to inform the design and deployment of new technologies. His most recent project focuses on the implementation of systems to support robot-assisted surgery. Jon publishes articles in journals such as Organizational Research Methods, Human Relations, Organization Studies, Research on Language & Social Interaction and Sociology of Health & Illness. His books include Video in Qualitative Research (Sage), Organisation, Interaction and Practice (Cambridge University Press) and Communication in Healthcare Settings (Wiley Blackwell). Furthermore Jon has received recent invitations to present his research in France, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Hong Kong and the USA. Jon invites potential PhD students to contact him if they are interested in undertaking ethnographic or video-based research studies in any setting relevant to work and organisation.
