Gabriella Conti

Associate Professor in Economics, UCL

My research draws on both the biomedical and the social sciences with the aim of understanding the developmental origins of health inequalities, and the behavioural and biological pathways through which early life conditions affect health throughout the lifecourse.

I'm currently working on projects on the health effects of early life interventions, both in humans and in nonhuman primates; on the importance of prenatal investments and foetal development for long‐term outcomes; and on the effects of health insurance on health in developing countries.

I'm also a Research Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies
