Pierre Walthery is a research fellow at the Centre for Time Use Research (CTUR).

His substantive research areas cover work and employment and subjective wellbeing through the prism of time diary analysis, as well as a few incursions into health inequalities research. He is mainly interested in quantitative methods (among which multilevel and latent variable modelling). Using the 2015 UK Time Use Surveys he has been exploring enjoyment at work as well as tools to model long term predictions of usual behaviour using mixed models. He has also been delivering several course modules: Applied Statistics for Sociologists (2016), Sociology of Post Industrial Societies (2016), jointly with Killian Mullan, and Sociology of Gender (2017 and 2018), jointly with Prof. Oriel Sullivan.

He has a long experience working with governmental agencies, and has contributed to reports for the Government Equality Office on the gender pay gap , the Department of Health (Impact on health inequalities of the New Deal for Communities), the European Commission, as well as the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions(Flexible Working Time Arrangements).
