PhD title: Determinants of healthy trajectories: multimorbidity and health trajectories over the lifecourse

Her PhD is part of the larger ATHLOS project (Ageing Trajectories of Health: Longitudinal Opportunities and Synergies), which aims to describe patterns of trajectories, determinants and inequalities of healthy ageing. In her PhD, she will investigate the characteristics of people who develop multiple chronic diseases (multimorbidity) and construct a new measure to project health outcomes of these people. Her research utilises data from 20 longitudinal studies, which comprise of 341,000 participants. Prior to joining the IoPPN, Hai worked as an Information Analyst at the Open University.
