Dr Daniel Kopasker

  • Research Associate (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)


Daniel is an applied econometrician whose work focuses on the intersection of health and labour market outcomes. His research investigates the ways in which employment relationships become a social determinant of health over the lifecourse, with a particular focus on mental health outcomes. This work aims to identify and evaluate strategies to protect the mental health of employees, improve labour productivity, and reduce inequalities in health resulting from labour market outcomes. He is currently working on the Health Equity and its Economic Determinants (HEED) project.

Prior to joining the Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in 2021, Daniel worked within the Health Economics Research Unit (HERU) at the University of Aberdeen. He holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Aberdeen, and an MSc in Economics from the University of Edinburgh.
