Team news

We are always keen to encourage our team members to develop their knowledge and understanding and to explore different opportunities to work with others and to share and collaborate in new ways. 

Chris Lübker (Equipol PhD student) is currently on a six-month Wellcome Secondment Fellowship to the OECD in Paris, France. He is working with the Wellbeing Research Modelling team at the Centre for Wellbeing, Inclusion, Sustainability, and Equal Opportunities (WISE) on updating an analysis of educational inequalities in life expectancy among OECD countries. Results will be used in upcoming OECD reports, including 'Health at a Glance'. 

Matthew Robson (Equipol Research Fellow) has recently completed a three month Wellcome Secondment Fellowship to Oxfam GB. He was working within the Evidence and Strategic Learning Team on a range of topics from poverty measurement to women's empowerment.
