Two broad strands of research characterise our research, relating to all phases of the life course: Health and mortality (including maternal and child health, and healthy ageing), and Migration, families and households. In our research we use register data, survey data, or qualitative data, and apply methods from analytical demography, advanced statistical analysis, qualitative analytical methods, and participatory approaches.

This combination of research data and methods generates rich findings that inform scientists and policy makers, and helps to develop interventions that are embedded into people's lives and address issues of inequality and inequity. Ultimately, we aim to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Gender equality, and Reduced Inequality.
