Research areas

My research is driven by my interest in (the explanation of) social inequalities in health, including how social determinants and lifestyle factors such as health behaviour influence health. My interest is further motivated by the fact that social inequalities in health have increased in recent decades, and that greater knowledge about the underlying mechanisms of social inequalities in health is needed in the development of effective policies and intervention programmes in the process of reducing social inequalities in health.
