Research interests

Broad research fields: Applied Microeconometrics, Consumer behaviour, Labour Economics, Public Economics

Specific research interests: My research focuses on empirical modelling of individual economic behaviour over the life-cycle, with particular focus on consumption and spending patterns, saving and asset accumulation, housing dynamics, and retirement and pension choices. Recent work has also begun to look at broader issues in the economics of ageing, such as health, physical and cognitive functioning and their association with labour market and broader socioeconomic status; the dynamics of work disability; the nature of expectations of retirement, health and longevity.
