Research Interests

My research interests lie in two core areas:

1. inequalities over the life-course and their effects on healthy and successful ageing.
My work in this area explores theories on poverty, socio-economic deprivation and cumulative disadvantage and looks at how inequalities shape people's lives longitudinally and affect their chances at ageing healthily and successfully. This research is policy oriented, comparative and international in outlook and aims at examining different policy contexts and their effects on population health and wellbeing.

2. My second research area is the sociology of social attitudes and religion. This research analyses population attitudes, such as social trust and prejudice towards social out-groups and looks at links between religious identities, beliefs and attitudes using cross-national survey data
