Steve Strand

A warm welcome to Steve Strand who is joining the Department in January from the post of Professor of Education at the University of Warwick.

Steve is taking up a statutory chair in Quantitative Methods and will be working with colleagues to take forward the work of the Department’s Quant Hub. He is interested in equity gaps – particularly in relation to ethnicity, social class and gender – in a wide range of educational outcomes (educational achievement, progress, attendance, exclusion, SEN) and at all stages of statutory schooling and beyond. He is also interested in school effectiveness, not only in relation to the progress of different ethnic and social groups, but also on the impact of pupil mobility, English language fluency, out-of-hours learning and a range of similar factors.

His methodological expertise lies in the analysis of large and complex longitudinal datasets, such as the National Pupil Database (NPD) and the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE).

Full details of Steve’s publications and grants can be found on his Department profile page.
