My work involves analyzing large datasets from multiple sources, including survey and routine data, and application of a wide range of advanced statistical techniques. I have knowledge of social survey methodology, and experience of survey questionnaire development. I also have project management experience.
I'm currently involved with two major research projects, ATHLOS and PrivMort. ATHLOS is an international collaborative project on healthy ageing. PrivMort is a project assessing the impact of privatization on the mortality crisis in Eastern Europe.
I have previously worked on CHANCES (Consortium on Health and Ageing: Network of Cohorts in Europe and the United States), a large scale collaborative project on ageing, and BiomarCaRE (Biomarker for Cardiovascular Risk Assessment in Europe), a research project examining established and novel biomarkers for cardiovascular risk prediction. Both projects were funded by the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme,
Prior to joining UCL, I worked in the voluntary sector, having previously completed a traineeship (policy) at the European Commission in Brussels. I have also been involved in several consultancy projects
I currently work on two major research projects, ATHLOS and PrivMort.
ATHLOS is an international collaborative project on healthy ageing. The aim of this research is to achieve a better understanding of ageing by identifying patterns of ageing trajectories over time and their determinants in order to inform clinical and public health interventions. The ultimate goal is to re-define ‘old age’ based on characteristics other than just chronological age to improve prediction and guide policy recommendations.
PrivMort is a project assessing the impact of privatization on the mortality crisis in Eastern Europe. This research utilized an indirect demographic method which collects interview data on the deaths of relatives to estimate key population mortality parameters in an innovative way by selecting one-company towns that were privatized in a radical way, and matching them with towns which had a different privatization experience. This enables us to directly study the effects of large-scale political, economic and organizational change on population health.
I am actively involved with teaching on post-graduate statistics and research methods courses for health and social sciences (delivery of lectures and practical sessions).
