Application Programming Interfaces for Social Policy Analysis

In this project we have been converting existing social policy datasets into documented RESTful API's that allow researchers to intergrate social policy data into wider social science research and beyond.


ocial Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) is a project funded by the EU framework programme Horizon 2020 and unites 20 partner organisations and their 27 associates in developing the social sciences and humanities area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). In SSHOC, I led tasks on the development of audio data collection in social surveys and the use of API's to intergrate Social Policy data in surveys.

Care, Retirement and Well-Being

As societies age, the well-being of the elderly becomes an important societal challenge. CREW builds an interdisciplinary team of researchers from six institutions in five countries (Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Canada), to examine the interrelationships between care, work, health and wellbeing..

Comparative Study of Family Dynamics

This was a collaborative project with colleagues from Princeton, Oxford and Peking University to examine important dmeographic, economic and social changes taking place in both China and Europe. These challenges present the two regions with some common challenges, including rising economic inequality, heightened migration, regional imbalance and population ageing.

Vizualizing Life Histories

This was a collaborative project with Eugenio Pagelino where we developed an interactive vizualization to illustrate life history patterns. Its based on data from the GGP Harmonized Histories data and I will be updating it as more data is released. I am also interested in developing similar vizualizations for teaching and educational purposes.


Synergies for Europe's Research Infrastructures in the Social Sciences (SERISS) was a four-year project that aimed to strengthen and harmonise social science research across Europe. I represented the GGP and worked on the implementation of GDPR across Survey Infrastructures.
