Aaron Reeves

Postdoctoral Researcher in Quantitative Sociology

Aaron Reeves is working on an EU-funded project (DEMETRIQ) with Dr. David Stuckler examining natural experiments in relation to poverty-reduction and health as well as exploring the impact of the recession and austerity on health outcomes.

Aaron is a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Sociology and Nuffield college at the University of Oxford where he is working on projects analysing the association between social protection, tax systems and health outcomes. Specifically, he is interested in how tax regimes influence maternal and child health through patterns of consumption in low- and middle-income countries.

Prior to his time at Oxford he worked briefly at the University of Cambridge and completed his PhD in Applied Social & Economic Research with the Institute for Social and Economic Research, University of Essex.
