Johnson PlaceI undertake desk-based research independently of my journalism from time to time. Please do get in touch if you have any research projects which you’d like to work with me on.

Recent projects have included:

  • Food bank use in the South East of England
  • Mapping industry and civil society organisations in India
  • Living Wage initiatives and data
  • How women in the UK have been affected by Government Policy since 2010

From 2007 to 2008 I worked for a Local Council collecting, analysing and publishing data about economic development. This included primary research through questionnaires.


Office of Keith Taylor MEP: We commissioned Samir to write a report for us on food bank use in South East England. The report, which was clearly and persuasively written, brought together regional statistics to show the jump in food bank use across the South East. 

Samir’s work was thorough, on time and hugely informative. The report itself generated both national and local media coverage and Samir was always on hand to help with media queries as they came in. 
We certainly hope to work with Samir again and would recommend him to anyone looking for a freelance researcher or writer.”
