I lead a research team investigating the drivers of recent improvements in longevity at older ages and, particularly, how these vary by socioeconomic circumstances.

We recently modeled the relative contribution of changes in major population level risk factors versus modern treatments in explaining the {unequal} decline in coronary heart disease mortality between socioeconomic groups. This research is supported by Legal and General plc where I am Principal Research Analyst in the Longevity Risk Team.

I am now using prognosis research methods to unpack the reasons for socioeconomic variation in fatal and non-fatal outcomes for the main cardiovascular disease phenotypes.

Before joining UCL, I was Assistant Director at the Office for National Statistics; Chair of Eurostat’s ‘Partnership in Health’ programme; and Consultant Analyst at the Department of Health. I began my career as a health analyst at the Department of Primary Care, Imperial College London after completing my PhD.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My research interest is in healthy ageing and explanations for social, ethnic and geographical inequalities in health expectancies and longevity. I have published on a range of topics – social and ethnic inequalities; disability; resource allocation; and evaluation of models of service delivery in primary care – and remain interested in these.
