About me

Emily carries out multi- and inter-disciplinary research to understand behaviours, expectations and experiences related to demographic phenomena and their consequences in low- and middle-income settings. Concern for equity underpins all her research. 

She is leading research on equity and sustainability in care, focusing on the costs and consequences of unpaid dementia care for carers in Mexico, India and Jamaica and the future of long-term care for vulnerable older adults in Malawi and South Africa.  Her previous work includes research on access to safe abortion in Zambia and older adults’ experiences of ageing, sex and HIV infection in rural Malawi.

Emily co-supervises PhD students working on health-related topics in a range of countries.
