Innovate Magazine: Café Society

Innovate Magazine Cover Coventry UniversityLanding on my desk at work this week was the most recent issue of Coventry University’s Research and Enterprise magazine, Innovate. Some of my work around the importance of cafés and coffee shops for many people in modern society is featured. It’s just a short piece which explains a little about why I ended up researching the coffee shop industry, why I think its important to study, and some potential future research avenues. The article can be read in the online version of the magazine (page 16) alongside lots of other interesting articles about research at Coventry University (from renewable energy in Brazil to edible insects). 

I was quite surprised to see a double page spread of a photo of me in the magazine – when I had been to the photoshoot for this article in a local coffee shop, I was told a selection of images would be used. The barista went to great efforts to make the Coventry University logo on the latte (pictured here).

You can find out more about the ‘Spaces of Community’ research project which inspired this article here, or my new research project around the coffee shop industry and the circular economy here.
