Dr Nadia Siddiqui
University of Durham
Dr Nadia Siddiqui has academic expertise in education research and equity in education. She has led important education research projects contributing evidence for education policy in England, and education evaluation studies of widely used catch-up learning programmes in primary schools.
Her research interests lie in exploring the stubborn patterns of poverty and inequalities through population data sets, large scale surveys and cohort study datasets. By using these secondary data resources she investigates the indicators of disadvantage that determine children's academic attainment, wellbeing and happiness, and access to pathways for successful life.
She is currently leading a British Academy GCRF project on early childhood development for investigating the role of early years of schooling on children's learning.
