Research interests

My research interests span three distinct but related areas of investigation: inequalities in later life; informal carers and employment; and the retirement prospects of future generations of elders. A unifying theme throughout much of my research is the use of a dynamic, life course perspective.

  • inequalities in later life, particularly inequalities in the incomes of older people, equity in health and social care, and inequalities amongst ethnic elders in the UK
  • informal carers, paid employment and resources
  • the retirement prospects of future generations of elders, particularly the building and use of different types of policy tools for modelling income, pensions, health, incapacity, demand and supply of formal and informal care amongst older people in the future

Current research projects include:

  1. ESRC SAGE Research Group: Simulating Social Policy in an Ageing Society, jointly based at Southampton and LSE. Co-Director with J. Falkingham, Southampton (PI), P. Johnson (LSE) and K. Rake (Fawcett Society).
