Dr Filip Sosenko

  • Research Associate (Mental Health & Wellbeing)

Biography

I am an applied social researcher with 14 years of hands-on experience. I have worked on nearly 40 research projects, most of them mixed-methods or quantitative. I am interested in social determinants of health and ‘Health-in-all-policies’ approaches to policymaking, but also in research methodology and quasi-experimental ways of analysing observational data.  

Nearly all of my research has regarded populations experiencing economic disadvantage and associated social disadvantage, including poor physical and mental health. Engagement with services and the welfare system are also topics frequently researched in my projects.

I have considerable experience working with large and complex datasets, including national household surveys (e.g., Understanding Society, Scottish Health Survey, Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey) and administrative datasets such as Hospital Episode Statistics.

I have contributed to world-class research that won The Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2019.

Supervision

I am particularly interested in supervising projects that relate to social determinants of health or that involve primary data collection. 

Over 2022 I supervised a MSc in Global Mental Health project entitled 'How to help those that don’t want it: Exploring mechanisms for efficacy within masculine tailored help-seeking interventions'.
