Our teams: EpiAgeing

I started my research career as Research Fellow at University College London (UCL). In 2004/2005 I moved to France to join Inserm, and have built the EpiAgeing-CRESS team over the years.

My research is on understanding how social, behavioural, and clinical factors shape cognitive ageing trajectories and the risk of dementia. A key highlight of this research is the lifecourse approach, whereby consideration is given to exposures over the course of adulthood. I use a similar approach to research on disability and frailty.

I am a PI of the UCL-based Whitehall II study, and lead its cognitive ageing program. My research is currently funded by grants from the National Institute on Aging, NIH.
