Giorgio completed his PhD in Demography at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Giorgio has a long-standing interest in the field of social gerontology, particularly in the demographic and social determinants of health and wellbeing in later life in Europe. He has a particular interest in associations between social engagement and mental and physical health at older ages. Much of his work involves cross-national comparisons of the complex relationships between ageing and health using longitudinal secondary data and a life-course perspective. Giorgio has a keen interest and expertise in quantitative methodologies, including hierarchical modelling and causal inference.
