Angela Wiedemann joined the research group “Health & Longevity” of the Vienna Institute of Demography in February 2013 as a research assistant. She studied geography with a focus on regional demography at the University of Vienna. In 2013-2014 she successfully completed the European Doctoral School of Demography in Rostock and Warsaw.

One of Ms. Wiedemann’s research foci are 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 particular those resulting from biological differences between women and men, 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 if there is a part of health which is determined in early life stages. More specifically, her PhD thesis deals with long-term effects of the socioeconomic environment encountered during childhood on morbidity and mortality in adulthood.
