      Research Statement


      Mark McGovern is a Lecturer in Economics at Queen’s Management School, Queen’s University Belfast, and the UKCRC Centre of Excellence for Public Health (Northern Ireland). Prior to joining Queen’s in September 2015, he was a Program on the Global Demography of Aging Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University.
