Her areas of expertise include longitudinal data analysis, multilevel and latent variable modelling, and models for complex covariance structures. She has worked on a range of applications in demography, education, family psychology and health.
She has directed several research grants funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), including the LEMMA node of the National Centre for Research Methods for which she led the development of a popular online training course on multilevel modelling which has over 30,000 registered users worldwide. Recent grants have been for projects on the interrelationships between housing transitions and fertility in Britain and Australia, and on methods for the analysis of longitudinal dyadic data with applications to intergenerational exchanges of support in Britain.
