Dr Morag Treanor is an academic, social researcher and quantitative data analyst with 17+ years’ experience of working across the private, voluntary and public sectors.
The primary focus of her work is child poverty – its measurement, causes, consequences, mitigation and prevention. Her work spans academic research and publications, applied social research for public and voluntary bodies and statistical analysis of large-scale datasets, especially Scottish and UK birth cohort studies. She conducts academic and applied research with a range of collaborative partners.
She is soon to be Professor of Child and Family Inequalities at Heriot-Watt University (April 2019), is currently Senior Lecturer at the University of Stirling, and was lecturer in Quantitative Social Policy at the University of Edinburgh.
Morag has strong quantitative and qualitative research skills. She is unusual for a researcher in that her work uses quantitative and qualitative methods in equal measure to understand child and family poverty.
She is an experienced evaluator and can undertake pre- and post-intervention analyses, process and outcome evaluations, cost/benefit analyses and can provide support with research guidance, evidence reviews and research ethics. Please see the page on ‘Collaboration’ for more information.Follow:
