April2014blurred background2I am a Professor of Social Gerontology at The University of Manchester,  where I direct MICRA, the Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing. I am also currently the President of the British Society of Gerontology (2016 – 2019).

After reading Law at Trinity Hall, Cambridge in the mid-1980s, I practised as a barrister for about 15 years. I was drawn into academia by my concern over pensioner poverty. My research now centres on finance over the life course, especially pensions and poverty, financial services for an ageing society and household money.
