‘I visited CEPAR at the UNSW Sydney node as a PhD student under the UNSW Study Abroad Research Practicum Program under the supervision of Dr Katja Hanewald. Visiting for a period of four months provided a wonderful opportunity to work with the experts at CEPAR and allowed us to successfully complete our joint project ‘Income Inequality of the Elderly in China’. I really enjoyed my time at CEPAR with all of the research team and found it to be a wonderful environment to complete the project in. There were also many opportunities to attend workshops and seminars which were of great interest in my work.’

‘In 2018 I was fortunate to receive funding from the CEPAR HDR Student Conference Travel Scheme to support my participation in the 14th International Longevity Risk and Capital Markets Solutions Conference in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. At the conference I presented a paper entitled “Health Status Mortality Modelling Based on a Multiple-state Markov Ageing Model” based on the results of my PhD project which focuses on health status, mortality heterogeneity and implications for post-retirement. Attending the conference provided me with the opportunity to receive valuable feedback and connect with a number of international researchers. I appreciate the support that CEPAR provided, allowing me the opportunity to participate in such a renowned international conference.’
