Postgraduate Associate

Department: Social Work, Education and Community Wellbeing

Rowan Van Muysen

I am a researcher with a diverse range of interests with experience of working primarily using qualitative research methodologies. I have master’s degrees with distinction in both Town and Country Planning, and Education. My research interests include political ideologies and their effects on the views of young people, neoliberalism, issues around groupthink, homelessness and public health. I am working on, or have been recently involved in, research projects which: examine means to use clown training to overcome issues of groupthink and industrial stagnation, a project which examines the educational research output of Northumbria University, and a project which examines how homeless people interact with health services.
