Ariel Lindorff

Research Fellow

College Affiliation: Kellogg College

Ariel is a Research Fellow working on projects related to educational effectiveness and improvement, equity issues in education, classroom practice, and mathematics education.

Methodologically, her interest are in mixed methods and advanced quantitative methods. Her main teaching responsibilities include leading the MSc Research Design and Methodology pathway (from September 2018) and contributing to introductory/intermediate quantitative methods instruction.

Outside the department, she is also Course Tutor for a mixed methods short course in the Departmnt for Continuing Education. Ariel previously completed her DPhil here in the Department. She also holds Qualified Teacher Status in the UK, and prior to becoming a researcher she was a secondary mathematics teacher in the USA since 2006.

Her previous degree was a Masters in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from Hunter College, City University of New York.
