Lewis Anderson

Postdoctoral Researcher


I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Professors Christiaan Monden and Erzsebet Bukodi (Department of Social Policy and Intervention) on an internationally collaborative, EU-funded project (Critical Life Events and the Dynamics of Inequality: Risk, Vulnerability, and Cumulative Disadvantage). The aim is to explore the impact of two critical life events – job loss and divorce or separation from one’s partner – on the accumulation of (dis)advantage over the lives of adults and their children.

My broader research interests include health inequalities (with a focus on mental health), social mobility, and the intergenerational transmission of advantage.
