Dean of the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences, University of Southampton

Professor Jane Falkingham is Dean of the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton and Director of the ESRC Centre for Population Change.

“Demographic change and its consequences for the distribution of social and economic welfare is a consistent theme throughout all my research.”

I am currently the Director of the ESRC Centre for Population Change.

My research interests are in:
•The drivers and consequences of population change, both in the UK and internationally
•Ageing, intergenerational relations and the changing life course
•Population ageing and social security, in particular the design of pensions systems and their impact upon resources in later life
•The redistributive effect of the welfare state, in particular how it varies both across the life-cycle for an individual and also between cohorts with changes in the life course
