Advanced Quantitative Research in Education

The Advanced Quantitative Research in Education Thematic Hub builds interdisciplinary connections and creates grounds for cross-fertilisation among researchers using advanced quantitative methods.

Our research focuses on education issues in policy-relevant topics such as inequalities and global education and uses comparative, longitudinal and large-scale data. The Hub will be a space where academics, across Moray House Schoool of Education and Sport and the wider University, with quantitative methods expertise and an interest in education issues come together to discuss their research, find support in addressing data, methodological and conceptual challenges and develop collaborative and inter-disciplinary work on topics relevant to policy and practice. The Hub is open to researchers using mixed methods and from different substantive research areas.

Leadership team

The Hub is led by Professor Cristina Iannelli and Dr Adriana Duta. The Hub also has Associate Members from other Schools in the University, including Professor Colm Harmon (School of Economics) and Professor Lindsay Paterson (School of Social and Political Science).
