Research interests

My substantive research centres on the intersections between population ageing and population health, with a focus on understanding the dynamics of chronic health conditions, frailty, and multimorbidity over time and across generations. I also research the implications of the co-existance of chronic conditions and infectious diseases (primarily HIV/AIDS) for both individual health outcomes and health systems. My methodological research centers on causal multistate models and demographic microsimulation. 

Current areas of work include:

  • Generational changes in health across low-, middle-, and high-income contexts
  • Interrelations between mental, physical, and cognitive health
  • Exposure to life-course trauma and late-life health and well-being

My methodological research interests include:

  • Demographic applications of microsimulation models
  • Causal methods for population health research
  • Formal demography of longevity
