Hello! My name is Anastasia Lam and I am a PhD student at the University of St Andrews and the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. I am also an affiliated student with the International Max Planck Research School for Population, Health and Data Science (IMPRS-PHDS). I have a background in public health and epidemiology and am delving into demography for my PhD.

I have worked on diabetes comorbidities in low- and middle-income countries, and with various statistical and epidemiological methods related to case-control studies and extensions to case-control designs and analyses (textbook forthcoming).

My PhD focuses on inequalities in multimorbidity across several countries and consists of four parts:

  1. Multimorbid life expectancy across race, socioeconomic status, and gender in South Africa (Under review; See working paper)
  2. Inequalities in disability-free and disabling multimorbid life expectancy in Costa Rica, Mexico, and the United States (Submitted; See working paper)
  3. Different patterns of multimorbidity in pre- and post-war birth cohorts in South Korea (In-progress)
  4. TBD (Planned for 2023/2024)
