Pierre Walthery has been a research fellow at the Centre for Time Use Research since September 2014. His current project involves designing long term prediction of time use using mixed models, as well as looking at health-related behaviour as time use sequences throughout the day. He also contributes to the Multinational Time Use Study, focusing on historical data from Central and Eastern Europe. His long term interest lies in economic sociology with a focus on gender and spatial inequalities. He studied regional differences in the employment trajectories of mothers of young children in the UK and has co-authored publications on reversible working-time provisions and work-life balance satisfaction. He is also interested in the gendered consequences of the recession and spending cuts. More recently, he started working on the combined longitudinal and spatial dimensions of health inequalities, and has been researching the impact of area based intervention on health trajectories in deprived areas in England
His main quantitative expertise revolves around latent variable modelling of cross-sectional and longitudinal data, including structural equation, latent growth and latent class analysis.
