Dr Ning Li is Gender Researcher for the CHOOSEMATHS project. With an extensive experience in statistical methodology and practice, she has been engaged in high quality research in the areas of Biostatistics, public health, economics, and education. Her research interest has been in the promotion of appropriate use of statistics to help understand real word problems. Her CHOOSEMATHS research “Gender Report: Participation, Performance, and Attitudes towards Mathematics” explores the gender disparities in mathematics education in Australia. Her recent development of a survey instrument that measures motivation behind the various choices in voluntary mathematics enrolments provides a tool for investigating questions such as why students keep or drop mathematics beyond Year 10 and why girls are severely underrepresented in advanced mathematics.
