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. Understanding how and why these relationships vary across societies and change over time is another aim of my research. I'm keen to supervise Phd (DPhil) students on these and related topics in sociology and social demography.
