Profile

As an applied statistician Chris researches and publishes across a wide range of social science disciplines.

He has particularly developed skills in the analysis of complex multilevel and longitudinal data, and is an expert user of statistical software packages SPSS, Mplus and R.

He is especially interested in the use of statistical methods to support and add rigour to research in areas where advanced quantitative analysis would typically be considered an anathema.

Alongside his research and teaching within IWP and more widely within SUMS, Chris has carried out statistical consultancy projects and advanced methods training for a wide variety of public and private sector organisations around the world.

Research interests

Specific projects that Chris is currently working on include:

  • The effects of perfectionism on well-being
  • Cheating in sport; is it a team, individual or circumstantial act?
  • From pitch to plinth; a study of statues of sportsmen and sportswomen.
  • The psychology of nostalgia and the use of nostalgia branding
  • The effect of the built environment and residential outdoor space upon well-being in older people

Teaching activities

Chris is strongly committed to furthering the statistical knowledge and practical analysis skills of both students and academics.

He believes it to be essential to improving both the rigour of social science research generally, and the potential for department members to publish high quality research in the best journals.

He currently teaches multivariate statistics modules MGT6167 and PSY6010 in semester 1; advanced multivariate statistics module PSY6210 in semester 2, and a 3-day course for both M.Sc Occupational Psychology and M.Res Psychology students in the use of SPSS statistical software to manage and analyse data.

Chris aims to teach the techniques and interpretation first, so they are understood before the complementary but distinct skill of using the software to run analyses is mastered.

He also runs day-schools in Data Management, Multilevel Modelling and Structural Equation Modelling as part of the Social Science Faculty DTC Advanced Quantitative Methods module for Social Science postgraduate students from the White Rose DTC.

In addition Chris offers a Statistics Clinic for postgraduate students from the Sheffield University Management School; this is held every Friday am.

Please email c.b.stride@sheffield.ac.uk to make an appointment.

Professional activities

I have performed statistical consultancy for a wide range of public and private sector organisations, including Barclays Bank, the Department for Education, and the NHS.

I have also acted as an expert advisor to national government data collection projects, including the English Housing Survey.

I have provided advanced methods training at over 100 UK, European, American and Australian universities; at international conferences; and as public courses.
