Description of Research Interests
One of the most consistently documented findings in epidemiological research is that health is socially patterned and that individuals at the lower end of the social spectrum are disproportionately more likely to suffer the burden of ill health. The gradient is apparent in early infancy and extends through childhood and adolescence into adulthood and old age. My research aims to elucidate the processes, pathways and mechanisms through which socially mediated variations in risk exposures come to influence health and mortality across the life-course. In trying to understand the factors contributing to the premature onset of disease among vulnerable groups, it is hoped that we will be better able to understand the ageing process.
