Her research areas of interest are health economics, the economics of human development, and biology and economics. Professor Conti’s research draws on both the biomedical and the social sciences with the aim of understanding the developmental origins of health inequalities, and the behavioural and biological pathways through which early life shocks and policies impact wellbeing throughout the life course.
