Tim Riswick is Assistant Professor of Historical Demography at the Radboud Group for Historical Demography and Family History, Department of History, Arts History and Classics, Radboud University, Nijmegen. He is affiliated with the project ‘Lifting the burden of disease. The modernisation of health in the Netherlands: Amsterdam 1854-1940‘.

His expertise focuses specifically on the impact of specific determinants on (cause-specific) mortality risks, and (comparative) family history research on East Asia and Western Europe in general. His main goal is to understand how mechanisms that determine health inequalities on the individual level are shaped and moderated through historical contexts by using a life course perspective. Next to this scientific aim, he tries to strengthen the field of historical demography by being a board member of the European Society of Historical Demography, and the Associate Editor of The History of the Family. Furthermore, he is the vice-president of the Work Council (OR) at Radboud University on behalf of PON-TRAP and a board member of Museum de Kantfabriek.
