Amritpal joined CPEC in 2010 as a quantitative researcher. His work has primarily centred on estimating and projecting the economic impacts of dementia for those with dementia and for their carers, as well as understanding the characteristics and projecting the supply of carers of older people more generally.
He has worked on a number of economic evaluations for randomised controlled trials, contributing to the analysis and costing of service-receipt data. He has also performed analyses for dementia-related cost-of-Illness studies and worked on the four-year MODEM project, which modelled the flow of individuals through dementia-care pathways. Regarding unpaid carers, Amritpal has also worked alongside colleagues on projecting the future supply of unpaid carers and factors determining unpaid care intensity.
He has an MSc in Statistics and a BSc in Mathematics and Economics, both from the LSE. He is currently undertaking a PhD at the department of Health Policy at the LSE understanding how individuals understand the term ‘carer’ and what determines whether an individual helping an older family member with long-term care needs will identify as a carer or not. His research interests are mainly concerned with the economic impact of dementia and valuation/measurement of unpaid carer time, as well as the estimation of carer outcomes.
