Amritpal joined CPEC (formerly the Personal Social Services Research Unit) in 2010. His work has primarily centred on estimating and projecting the economic impacts of dementia for those with dementia and for their carers, as well as understanding the characteristics of carers of older people more generally.
He has worked on a number of economic evaluations for randomised controlled trials, contributing to the quantitative analysis and costing of service-receipt data. He has also performed analyses for dementia-related cost-of-Illness studies and worked on the four-year MODEM project, which modelled the flow of individuals through dementia-care pathways.
He has an MSc in Statistics and a BSc in Mathematics and Economics, both from the LSE. His research interests are mainly concerned with the economic impact of dementia and valuation/measurement of unpaid carer time, as well as the estimation of carer outcomes.
