Mauricio Avendano Pabon

Adjunct Associate Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences

Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences

Mauricio Avendano is Professor of Public Policy and Global Health at the Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy at King’s College London, where he is also Director of the Institute of Gerontology. At Harvard, he is Adjunct Associate Professor at the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and affiliated faculty at the Center for Population and Development Studies.

He is interested in the intended and unintended consequences of social policies and programmes for both physical and mental health. His research uses quasi-experimental methods and data from randomised controlled trials to examine the health consequences of social programmes such as maternity leave benefits, unemployment benefit policy, conditional cash transfers, pension system reform, non-contributory pensions in Latin America, and urban and transportation policies. He is co-PI of Lifepath, a major EU consortium to understand socioeconomic inequalities in healthy ageing. He is also co-coordinator of MINDMAP, a EU consortium to examine the impact of urban policies on mental health. In addition, he leads an ESRC project within the Joint Initiative Programme that examines how pension reform influences the health and wellbeing of older workers.

He has been awarded several grants including a European Research Council grant (ERC, 2011-2016), as well as several grants from the European Commission, the Dutch Scientific Council, the UK Economic and Social Research Council, the National Institute on Ageing, the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), and the McArthur Foundation. He has published more than 90 papers in peer-reviewed international journals.

Before joining King’s College, Professor Avendano was Associate Professorial Research Fellow and Deputy Director of LSE Health at the London School of Economics and Political Science (2011-2015). He has been David Bell Fellow at Harvard University (2008-2010), and Assistant Professor at the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands (2006-2010).  He is also network associate of the McArthur Foundation Research Network on an Ageing Society.
