My research interests are in the economic, health and social policy implications of individual and population ageing with a particular focus on financial provision for later life and provision for long-term care needs. These interests are pursued mainly through the analysis of large-scale household survey data and the use of micro simulation techniques to model policy reform options. I have developed and maintain a dynamic microsimulation model of long-term care.
