Dr. Catherine Lido is a Lecturer in Psychology, in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow. Previously she worked at their Urban Big Data Centre, with Prof Mike Osborne, assessing the city's learning access and metrics, as well as working with large data and multi-media data sources.
She is a member of the SJPLE (Research and Teaching Group in Social Justice, Place & Lifelong Education), as well as a member of the Cradall and Pascal International Observatory networks. In this capacity all of her published work, as well as present research duties within the UBDC and SJPLE, fall within the area of widening participation into higher education and lifelong learning (particularly within the Greater Glasgow Area). She is an active member of the British Psychological Society and European Association of Social Psychologists, and is the editor of the Social Psychology Review (a publication of the BPS social section), as well as reviewer for a number of psychology and education-related journals/ publishers. She has presented widely on Learning Cities (and lifelong learning engagement) in Mexico City (Mexico), St. Petersburg (Russia), Izmir (Turkey) as well as hosting a number of conferences at Glasgow (including co-organising the PASCAL 2016 annual conference and pre-conference).
I am presently employed as a Research Fellow by the University of Glasgow, working for their new Urban Big Data Centre, and housed within the School of Education. I currently work with Prof Mike Osborne on assessing the city's learning access and metrics, as well as working with large data and multi-media data sources. Details of the project can be found at the urbanbigdatacentre.com.
I am a member of the SJPLE (Research and Teaching Group in Social Justice, Place & Lifelong Education), as well as a member of the Robert Owen Research Centre (ROC) in Education at Glasgow University. Mike Osborne, my line manager, is presently the director of Cradall and Co-director of the Pascal Observatory. In this capacity all of my published work, as well as present research duties within the UBDC and SJPLE, fall within the scope of both Cradall and the Pascal Observatory, as well as with the Robert Owen Research Centre at Glasgow University.
