Ambidextrous Research


I had an hour-long interview today with an MPhil student who is studying ambidexterity among researchers. I thought I might be useful to him as I am incredibly right-handed, so I agreed to be one of his subjects.

It turned out he was studying people who both teach at the university and do industrial consultancy. This is because "on the one hand" you're an academic and "on the other hand" you're an industry worker. He's in the Business School, and for him "ambidexterity" is a technical term for dividing your time between different employments with different demands.

That's going to be useful to know if anyone asks me to participate in such interviews in future...
