Recognised as one of the UK’s learning female data science professionals and having won a National Teaching Fellowship in 2020 for developing the Q-step programme at the University of Manchester, Professor Jackie Carter has continued to work tirelessly towards equality in data science.

She has been recognised internationally for her work in this area, with publications engaging with her work across the globe. Her approach has focused on creating a direct link and pathway between the classroom and the workplace, ensuring that students are prepared for stepping into a career upon leaving the University.
