I am a Lecturer in Gerontology and interested in older people’s social and support networks in developing and transitional societies.
I am interested in ageing, the life course and social networks in developing and transitional societies.
I joined the Centre for Research on Ageing in October 2006 and helped to develop the MSc in Gerontology. I studied Human Sciences at Oxford University, then obtained an MSc in Medical Demography at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I spent two years as researcher at the Institute of Population Research and Social Policy at Bielefeld University in Germany. I returned to Oxford for doctoral research on old-age support and intergenerational relations in Indonesia, obtaining my DPhil in 2002. Between 2004 and 2006 I was British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow at St Antony’s College and the Institute of Human Sciences at Oxford. During that time I also lectured and tutored in demography.
I am a member of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP), the British Society of Gerontology (BSG), the British Society for Population Studies (BSPS) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Demographie.
