Biography

After many years working in social survey research at the former Office for Population Censuses and Surveys I moved to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) where I obtained my MSc and PhD in epidemiology. More recently I have been working at University College London (UCL) where I had a project management role on the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA) as well as being actively involved in the research. My research since 1995 has focused on older people. While my first interests are the socioeconomic patterning of health and functioning I also have a general interest in the varied trajectories of ageing. Most recently I have been experimenting with ways of measuring social mobility at older ages. At LSHTM I worked mainly on the MRC Trial of Assessment of Older people and its add-on concerning nutrition; also a resurvey of the original cohort of Whitehall Civil Servants. I now work part-time; I retain an active part in ELSA and have teaching and organising roles on the Distance-Learning MSc Epidemiology at LSHTM.
