She is a mixed methods researcher, and has extensive experience of questionnaire design and development, analysis and report writing.
Prior to joining NatCen, Marta worked at Codici sc, a social research agency specialised in “action-research” and “empowerment processes” on issues such as education, communities, inclusion and migration; and at Doxa where she managed large-scale mixed-mode customer satisfaction surveys.
Marta has a MSc (Hons) in Sociology from Universitá degli Studi di Milano (Milan). Her dissertation - focused on the politics of body - draws on in-depth interviews to explore the narrative of location of young Afro-Italians and their role in re-shaping the meaning of afro hairdos.
