UC Meta Research Cluster Hui 4 August

Invitation to UCMeta’s Next Hui

UC Meta is a research cluster supported by the UC Business School Research Committee to facilitate multi-disciplinary research that focuses on meta-research. Information about UCMeta can be found here. 

We will have our next hui on Tuesday 4 August at 12-1 PM in the Meremere Staff Lounge (Meremere 236). It will feature two research presentations:

– Joana Kuntz, Associate Professor in the School of Psychology, will talk about her research on “Meta-analysis of workplace interventions to reduce psycho-social risk factors that affect employee health”.

– Dr. Devmali Perera, a postdoc in the Department of Economics and Finance, and Professor Jedrzej Bialkowski, also from the Department of Economics and Finance, will discuss their research, “Commodity futures hedge ratios: A meta-analysis”.

The format of the huis is short presentations with ample opportunity for interaction. Each presentation will be 15 minutes long and designed to “advertise” the researcher’s work. The goal is to spark the sharing of research ideas.

Please forward this invitation to others who you think may find this of interest. All are welcome.

Feel free to bring a lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Ngā mihi,

Prof Bob Reed

This August session will be available on Zoom if required


UC Business School Meta-Research Cluster (UCMeta) Hui 8 July 2020

Kia ora koutou
The UC Business School Research Committee recently provided support for a research cluster to support multi-disciplinary research that focuses on meta-research. Loosely translated, meta-research is research on research. A good introduction can be found here. The cluster is co-directed by Prof. Bob Reed and Assoc. Prof. Tom Coupe and goes under the name of UCMeta.

We will have our first hui on Wednesday, July 8th, 12-1 PM, in the Meremere Staff Lounge (Room 236). The tentative agenda is:
– Welcome and introduction from Bob Reed
– Opening remarks from Angus MacFarlane, Professor of Maori Research
– Opening remarks from Steve Ratuva, Director of the Macmillan Brown Centre
– Surprise announcement (maybe!)
– Presentation of recent research on meta-analysis from Sanghyun Hong, PhD student, Dept. of Economics and Finance
– Closing remarks

The purpose of the hui is to provide a brief introduction to UCMeta and facilitate networking for researchers who share an interest in this subject. Please forward this invitation to others who you think may want to attend. All are welcome.

Feel free to bring your lunch along. Tea and Coffee will be provided.
