The bulk part of my research focuses the economic analysis of individual health-related behaviour; I have produced both theoretical and empirical work on that theme. I wrote my doctoral thesis, and started my research activity, on the topic of economics of the family. A synthesis of this work and a central theoretical model within health economics (the Grossman model) provided theoretical tools for the analysis of the importance of the family and the family structure for individual health-related behaviour. Currently, the stock of research projects, which I am either participating in or both participating in and leading, includes several projects, all related to the individuals health related behaviour. The projects span from purely theoretical endeavours, to empirical undertakings which include traditional empirical analyses using existing databases; simulation analyses; and the gathering of real-life data concerning individual health-related behaviour in response to health interventions.
