Research profile / Current work

Martin is currently doing research on the impact of labour market exit trajectories on health in post-working life. This study will primarily be based on data from the Swedish Longitudinal Occupational Study of Health (SLOSH). However, it will draw on a range of other longitudinal studies of health and ageing. This work builds on previous work that he has done on the health and quality of life in later life whilst he was working at UCL and Imperial College London. He worked on both the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA) and the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). Martin has also with the Whitehall II data looked at the effects of retirement on health for British Civil Servants. Prior to joining the Stress Research Institute he was a Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK where he taught on a range of undergraduate and post-graduate modules on health and methodology.

Education: PhD in the Sociology of Ageing from UCL in 2012. Prior to this, BSc Sociology & Politics (1st class) and MSc Sociology (Distinction) from the University of Bristol in 1998 and 1999 respectively.
