Ankur’s main research focus is in examining individual- and area-level social inequalities in health outcomes and modelling effectiveness of policy interventions for its reduction using population-based data. His contributions are in public health areas of population oral health, tobacco control and in socio-epidemiologic theories for explaining health inequalities. In his current role, Ankur applies advanced quantitative as well as evidence synthesis methods such as multilevel modelling, causal mediation techniques, simulation modelling based on multistate lifetables, and systematic and scoping reviews. Within the Centre for Health Equity, Ankur works collaboratively with a team of researchers interested in quantitative research on Social and Spatial Epidemiology. Key focus areas of the research group include housing related health inequalities, intergenerational health inequalities and urban environments and health.
