Our new Q-Step colleague Alan Marshall will introduce himself and some of his ongoing research in this seminar. Alan comes to us from the University of St Andrews where he lectured in Human Geography. He will present analysis using the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing and other sources to demonstrate the ways in which events, circumstances and places (national and local) intersect to influence health and wellbeing and other outcomes in later life. Alan will reflect on the value of longitudinal data and international comparisons to understand the mechanisms driving inequalities in experiences of later life.

This event will take place on Tuesday, December 12, from 1pm-2.15pm in the Practice Suite (1.12) on the 1st floor of the Chrystal Macmillan Building.
