My main area of research concerns statistical methods for the analysis of longitudinal data, in particular structural equation models, multilevel models, survival models and methods for dealing with missing data. Since 2006 I have been working with the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (http://www.ifs.org.uk/ELSA) and my research focuses on trajectories of physical health and well-being. I also use data from the Health and Retirement Study in US, the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe, the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging and the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study, for cross-national comparisons.
I teach basic statistics, regression modelling (module leader) and advanced statistics for the MSc Social Epidemiology: Society and Health (www.ucl.ac.uk/healthandsociety). I also teach Statistical Analysis Methods for Epidemiology and Longitudinal Data Analysis to PhD student across UCL (Graduate School, UCL). I supervise the projects of MSc and PhD students and I with other statisticians in the Department I contribute to the Statistical Consultancy Clinic for the Medical School.
