Dean of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences

Background

The University of Southampton

I am currently the Director of the ESRC Centre for Population Change.

My research interests are in:

  • The drivers and consequences of population change, both in the UK and internationally
  • Ageing, intergenerational relations and the changing life course
  • Population ageing and social security, in particular the design of pensions systems and their impact upon resources in later life
  • The redistributive effect of the welfare state, in particular how it varies both across the life-cycle for an individual and also between cohorts with changes in the life course
Professor Jane Falkingham's photo

"Demographic change and its consequences for the distribution of social and economic welfare is a consistent theme throughout all my research."

Research

Research Interests

I have a number of currently funded research projects, including:

The ESRC Centre for Population Change, is funded by the ESRC from 2009-2018 to examine the drivers and consequences of population change. For a full overview of its research programme see http://www.cpc.ac.uk/research_programme/

I am also PI on the EPSRC Care Life Cycle Programme.  The programme aims to develop a suite of innovative modelling tools incorporating factors associated with the supply and demand of health and social care as well as expert opinion, to inform the development of social policy. For more details see http://www.southampton.ac.uk/clc/

I am Co-I on the EPSRC funded Energy for Development project. The current work in Africa involves promoting and implementing electrification projects for impoverished rural villages without power sources, establishing and addressing villagers' needs, investigating impacts on rural poverty and improving the health and wellbeing of the community. This unique work is providing power to businesses and to around 3000 villagers in Kenya and influencing the work of global institutions with mandates in this area. see http://www.energyfordevelopment.net/

I am also co-I on the EPSRC funded Liveable Cities Programme grant  (£6.3million). Liveable Cities is an ambitions, five-year programme of research to develop a method of designing and engineering low-carbon, resource-secure, wellbeing enhanced UK cities. This will be achieved via the development of a unique City Analysis Methodology (CAM) that will measure how cities operate and perform in terms of their people, environment and governance, taking account of wellbeing and resource security.The CAM will be used to establish future visions of low-carbon, resource-secure, liveable UK cities from which the team will backcast to determine what needs to be done now to achieve these visions. Using the CAM, the Liveable Cities team will develop realistic and radical engineering solutions for achieving the UK's ambitious carbon reduction targets and will test them in three UK cities: Birmingham, Lancaster and Southampton.  See  http://www.southampton.ac.uk/engineering/research/projects/liveable_citiestransforming_the_engine.page
