Christiaan Monden

Professorial Fellow
Professor of Sociology and Demography

Research Interests : Family sociology; social demography; social inequalities; social variations in health and mortality.

I study how the family affects individuals' health and vice versa, and the ways in which health and well-being are related to socio-demographic transitions in the life course. Explaining why these relationships vary among societies and change over time is another aim of my research.

More generally, my research interests concern: social inequalities; social variations in mortality, health, and well-being; causes and consequences of life course transitions; and marriage patterns. I'm keen to supervise Msc/Mphil and DPhil students on these and related social demographic topics.
