Emily Grundy worked in the Centre/Department of Population Studies from 1998 to May 2012 when she left to take up a post as Professor of Demography at Cambridge University. She remains connected with the School through various collaborative projects particularly the PATHWAYs project (see http://pathways.lshtm.ac.uk/ ) of which she is director. PATHWAYS aims to identify pathways that link socio-demographic circumstances and biological disadvantage to adult health, and parental family and socio-economic circumstances to infant mortality, with a particular emphasis on the mediating factors that lie on these pathways. Emily is working on this project in collaboration with Bianca DeStavola, Mike Kenward, Richard Silverwood and Rhian Daniel in the Medical Statistics Department; George Ploubidis and Sanna Read in the Population Health Department, and others in the Faculty.
Emily is an Honorary Professor in the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health primarily linked to the Medical Statistics Department.

Emily contributes to teaching on the term one Population Studies course. She also contributes to courses run as part of the PATHWAYs training programme) http://pathways.lshtm.ac.uk/courses/
(PATHWAYs is a node of the National Centre for Research Methods which offers many other courses as well, see http://www.ncrm.ac.uk/training/
Most of Emily's research has been focused on ageing. Her main interests in this field are families, households and social support in later life, especially in relationship to health; trends and differentials in health and disability, and the long term consequences of marital and reproductive history for health and social support. Much of Emily's research has involved analysis of data from the Office for National Statistics Longitudinal Study (ONS LS)and she leads the team which provides support to academic users of this resource (CeLSIUS). Emily is involved in several European collaborative projects, as well as collaborative projects elsewhere, and chairs the European Population Association working group on demographic change and the support of older people.
