Recognition for a lifetimes work

Amongst twenty new Fellows and three Honorary Fellows recently elected to the Academy of the Royal Society Te Apārangi for their distinction in research and advancement of science, technology and the humanities were NPM Co-Director Professor Waimarie Nikora and Principal Investigator Professor Angus Macfarlane.
 
Professor Angus Macfarlane (University of Canterbury)
Angus has worked as lead researcher on some significant NPM projects including Ka Awatea: An iwi case study of Māori students experiencing success. He is a Professor of Māori Research and Director of the Māori Research Laboratory Te Rū Rangahau at the University of Canterbury, and his deliberate bi-cultural approach to research is best exemplified in his seminal models, the ‘Educultural Wheel’, used extensively in schools in New Zealand, and his ‘He Awa Whiria’ framework that was adopted as a model of best practice by Superu for its research on whānau and families.
