Published 2015-04-14
Are the chairs you want to buy designed well? Do you have an opinion on government surveillance of personal data? What do you think about windfarm development?

In this lecture, Professor Williams described his research, which aims to validly and reliably assess practice, and in so doing, help overcome the false dichotomy between theory and practice.
