Emily is responsible for overseeing all of the evidence work under our priority goal of ‘Fulfilling work’ – making sure we have the right information to understand how to get more people aged 50 to 69 into fulfilling work.
Before joining Ageing Better, Emily was an Associate Director at the Institute for Government, where she spent two years leading their Performance Tracker – a data driven analysis of nine key public services (from social care, to schools, to prisons). She is still keenly interested in public spending decisions and their implications – and is looking into the economics of later life as part of our wider agenda.
Emily holds a PhD in History from the University of Warwick. Her thesis – ‘Senility before Alzheimer’ – explored old age and dementia in Victorian Britain. She began her career as a secondary school teacher in London.
