0203 - Anabela Soares - BAEF Educator Interview

In conversation: Allen Higgins and Anabela Soares

I am delighted to be joined today by Anabela Da Silva Filipe Soares. 

Anabela is a Senior Lecturer in Strategy & Operations Management at the University of the West of England and a member of the Business Analytics Educators Forum.

·       To start, Analytics educators come from all kinds of professions. Can you share a little about your own background and your perspective on data analytics?

·       How is analytics used in your original profession’s day-to-day work? [e.g. accounting, sociology, psychology, marketing, economics, engineering, computing, medical specialism, etc.]

·       And how is analytics used in academic research?

·       Can you talk a little about how academic research differs from industry research?

·       How does analytics influence research design?

·       What do people mean by “good quality data”? How do you produce good quality data?

·       As a self-declared 'questionnaire geek' can you share three tips for someone designing a questionnaire?

·       To close out the interview... What are your favorite podcasts or video channels? 

·       And, can you share a geeky secret? 

Well, we’ll wrap up there.

Thank you for sharing your ideas with us today.
