Angela Wiedemann joined the research group “Health & Longevity” of the Vienna Institute of Demography in 2013 as a research assistant. She studied geography with a focus on regional demography at the University of Vienna. She received the European Research Certificate of Demography for completing successfully the European Doctoral School of Demography in Rostock and Warsaw in 2013-2014. Currently, she is enrolled in the bachelor’s degree programme in health care and nursing at the FH Campus Wien – University of Applied Sciences in Vienna.

Ms. Wiedemann’s research focuses on health differentials among population subgroups. For instance, in her diploma thesis she analyzed the life expectancy of migrants and non-migrants by means of indirect estimation techniques. She also examined sex differences in health in the framework of the HEMOX (http://www.cloisterstudy.eu) project as well as the socioeconomic differences in adult mortality in Germany. Apart from that, she is interested in the long-term effects of differences in the socioeconomic environment encountered during childhood on morbidity and mortality in adulthood.
