Dr Pantić is a Senior Lecturer (associate professor) at the University of Edinburgh, School of Education. Much of her recent work has focused on teachers and their education as agents of change. She has published extensively on teachers’ work in the contexts of social and cultural diversity. In her current research she uses mixed-method social network analysis to examine how teachers interact with other actors to address educational inequalities and support all students, especially the vulnerable ones. Since 2002 she has engaged in numerous research and reform projects, both as an academic, and in various consultancy roles for international organisations. She is passionate about educational research and its impact on change in education to address some of the biggest social challenges of our time, such as migration.
