Ms Rebeka Balogh

  • Research Assistant (Mental Health & Wellbeing)

Biography

I joined the School of Health & Wellbeing and the SLDO in December 2023. Prior to this, I worked on my EUTOPIA-funded joint PhD at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium) and the University of Warwick (UK). My thesis investigates the links between the quality of employment (trajectories) and mental health and mortality outcomes using administrative and survey data and with quantitative methods. During my PhD, I also worked on a number of national and international projects around work-related health. My current work within the SLDO concerns the social determinants of health for people with learning disabilities and their family carers. I have a quantitative social science background and have a keen interest in social epidemiology. I have worked with various large datasets, including census, administrative and survey data. 

I am also affiliated with the Brussels Institute for Social and Population Studies.

Research interests

My research interests include:

  • the social determinants of health
  • employment and job quality & precarious employment, and their links with health and wellbeing
  • unpaid (care) work and links with health and wellbeing
  • life-course and gender equality
