I am a quantitative researcher with training and research experience in Economics, Social Policy and Sociology. I have experience undertaking income distribution/poverty, life satisfaction and neighbourhood effects analysis using a range of datasets, including the German Socio-economic Panel (SOEP) and the British Household Panel Study (BHPS). I am interested in research around what it is that makes people satisfied with their lives. My main focus lies on the whether and how the local context enhances or hinders people's life chances.
My current research centers around the relationship between where people live and how this impacts their well-being. I am also interested in exciting innovative data collections and am involved in a number of projects that are looking to analyse data from longitudinal studies and administrative records.
I am member of the design and implementation team of Understanding Society, managing health and economic record linkages. I am also involved with training researchers in using the BHPS and Understanding Society data using Stata.
New findings on consent to data linkage: Analysis of four studies in a comparative framework reveals: health linkage consent rates on British cohort studies higher than on UK household panel surveys. BMC Medical Research Methodology 14:125.
