José Manuel Aburto

Newton International Fellow

José Manuel’s overarching research aim is to produce novel insights on population health inequalities and better understand the link between health inequalities and social determinants of health. He works on developing and advancing formal demographic techniques to measure and understand inequalities in the length of life, and he uses these methods to examine the structural and social determinants of population health inequalities. 

He joined the University of Oxford and LCDS to hold the Newton International Fellowship from the British Academy. He completed a PhD in Health Sciences and Demography in 2020 at the University of Southern Denmark and the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. He also has graduate training in Demography through research fellowships held at the Center for Demography of Health and Aging at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, at Sapienza University of Rome under the European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD), and an MA at El Colegio de México.
