Associate Professor Nadia Siddiqui, from our highly rated School of Education, has been named among UPSIGN’s top 75 Notable British Pakistani Academics for 2022/2023.

Expertise in education

The announcement, which is in commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of Pakistan’s Independence, recognises Dr Siddiqui’s global expertise in education research and equity in education.

Research in action

Dr Siddiqui, who joined us in 2013, leads on many projects contributing important evidence for education policy in England, Pakistan and India. Dr Siddiqui’s work extends to several hundred research publications, including four books, with areas of research including the impact of poverty on children’s access to school, learning and social emotional developments.

A track record of citizenship

With a considerable track-record of active citizenship, Dr Siddiqui’s research findings help inform schools about what works, and which programmes are more promising in reducing the impacts of poverty.

“I was surprised but delighted to be featured in the UPSIGN list of 75 Notable Pakistani Academics, Teachers and Trainers across all fields. This is not only valuable recognition of my research and impact, but also global recognition and acknowledgement of our Evidence Centre for Education’s excellence in research for education,” said Dr Siddiqui.
