Our Team
The strength of Sparrow Research Group lies in our multidisciplinary team. Sparrow Research team members have been trained at leading research institutions and offer expertise spanning the full range of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. Teams are assembled on a project by project basis depending upon the types of expertise required. We can undertake the entire spectrum of a project, or work only on the specific research and evaluation elements for which you require additional expertise.
