Anna Marcinkiewicz joined ScotCen in September 2012.
Before joining Scotcen’s research team, Anna worked as an interviewer for the Scottish Social Attitudes Survey and as a Social Policy Researcher for Citizens Advice Scotland. She holds a degree in Social Policy and Sociology from the University of Edinburgh where she conducted a qualitative study on consultation with Gypsy/Travellers in Scotland.
Anna has experience of using various qualitative methods, including conducting depth interviews and focus groups, data management, analysis and reporting. Recent qualitative and mixed method projects include a Feasibility Study for the Equality and Diversity Network and Guidance on Good Practice on Religion and Belief for the Equality and Human Rights Commission. She has also been involved in an evaluation of FareShare – a charity redistributing surplus food to vulnerable groups in society and a JRF-funded study on everyday kindness and support in Glasgow.
Anna has also worked on a range of large-scale quantitative studies, including the Scottish Social Attitudes survey, for which she developed questions and co-wrote a report on the Scottish Government-funded research on attitudes to sectarianism in Scotland and attitudes to alcohol in Scotland (funded by NHS Health Scotland).
