Nadia Siddiqui, Professor

Reader at Durham University

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. Her research interests are to explore the stubborn patterns of poverty and inequalities through population data sets and large-scale surveys such as National Pupil Database (NPD, England), Higher Education Statistics (HESA), Annual Survey of Education Report data (ASER, Pakistan), and the Longitudinal Survey of Young People in England (LSYPE). 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.
