Dr Marc Sarazin is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Education at the University of Edinburgh. He researches how social networks, institutional environments, and government policies influence teachers’ work and students’ school experiences. His work stems from the premise that schools can just as well maintain inequalities as they can enable social change, and his research strives to promote schooling that does more of the latter. To do this, Marc analyses data from many different sources, from administrative ‘big data’ to ethnographic observations from the field. He also focuses on furthering applications of social network analysis and mixed methods approaches in education.
