Dr Laurence Roope
BSc (Hons) MSc PhD
Laurence joined the Health Economics Research Centre in January 2013, after completing a PhD in Economics at the University of Manchester. He also holds a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics from the University of Durham and an MSc in Econometrics from the University of Manchester.
Laurence’s research interests lie broadly within development economics, with particular interests in poverty, inequality, health, and human capital. Much of his work has involved developing and analysing indicators of societal wellbeing and deprivation. He is especially interested in the relationship between economic growth and inequality, and how to make economic growth more inclusive. His work on global inequality was featured in the United Nations Human Development Report 2016. He has also recently developed interests in behavioural economics and in the economics of antimicrobial resistance. He is currently engaged in several projects in these areas funded by the NIHR and the ESRC.
Laurence has worked as a consultant for the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), is a Research Associate at the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE) and an External Associate at the Global Development Institute (GDI, University of Manchester). Prior to working in academia Laurence was a professional econometrician in the private sector.
