Daniel joined CEDAR on 1 October 2001 as a research fellow, and the Institute of Education as a lecturer in Quantitative Research Methods.

Daniel's main research interests are quantitative modelling of educational data, school and teacher effectiveness and use of ICT to enhance student learning.

Past research projects include:
  • The evaluation of the Gatsby Mathematics Enhancement Project Primary, a large scale programme evaluation involving testing, classroom observation, survey design and quantitative analysis.
  • The evaulation of the Gatsby Mathematics Enhancement Project (Secondary), a mixed-methods programme evaluation involving in-depth case-studies, surveys and analysis of examination results.
  • A longitudinal, quantitative Study of the relationship between Media Use and School Achievement among Flemish primary school children.
Ongoing research projects include:
  • Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Use of trained Numeracy Support Assistants in Primary Mathematics Teaching
  • Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Use of the RM ILS system in Primary Mathematics Teaching.
  • Development of the Gatsby Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme, a professional development programme based on findings from teacher effectiveness research, that includes training sessions, multi-media and a teacher buddying system.
