Profile

Research Description

My current research is focused on determinants of health in countries of Central and Eastern Europe. In particular, I work on The Health, Alcohol and Psychosocial factors In Eastern Europe (HAPIEE) Study, the Wellcome Trust and NIA funded project concentrating on determinants of poor health status in samples of general population in Russia, Poland, Lithuania and the Czech Republic. My work includes research on the measurement of socioeconomic position in relation to various health outcomes over the lifecourse, analysing and explaining the role of psychosocial factors in health, and explaining social variations in health in several countries undergoing social and economic transformation. I am also coordinating UCL part of the EU-FP7 funded DRIVERS project with focus on early social determinants of later health and development of children and young adolescents.
