Scientific summary

Epidemiology of Ageing and Neurodegenerative diseases (Team EpiAgeing, CRESS), Inserm U1153, Université de Paris

Whitehall II study, University College London,

My research is on the determinants of cognitive decline and dementia with a focus on socioeconomic, occupational, psychosocial, behavioural and biological factors. A second aspect of my work is on the social determinants of health at older ages in order to understand the mechanisms underlying inequalities in health.
