Dr Zhixin Frank Feng is Research Fellow within Social Sciences: Ageing/Gerontology at the University of Southampton.

Zhixin (Frank) Feng is a Research Fellow in the Centre for Research on Ageing funded by the Economic and Social Research Council's Secondary Data Analysis Initiative. He is looking at the pension provision for minority ethnic groups in Britain, the determinants, prospects and policy implications of the current social security in Britain. He also tries to apply the advance statistics method—multilevel models to investigative whether there are some ecological effects of the determinants which not reducible to individual characteristics.

Frank just completed his PhD thesis on “A Longitudinal Multilevel Study of the Health Outcomes for the Elderly in China” in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol (2013). In his thesis, he studied the social security inequality among the elderly, the role of family and state in the support systems to the health of the elderly, the effects of income inequality on the health of the elderly, and the survival status of the elderly and how these effects vary in temporal and spatial scales.
