I am currently a postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Wellbeing Research Centre at the University of Oxford. In September 2020, I will be joining the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard Kennedy School

I am a behavioural scientist with an interdisciplinary background and an interest in happiness, prosocial behaviour, inequality, and policy. My work integrates methods from psychology and behavioural economics and focuses on three questions: 1) how macro and socioeconomic factors shape people's wellbeing, 2) how inequalities influence people's preferences and behaviour, and 3) how generosity can be encouraged. I use large-scale datasets and experiments to explore these questions individually as well as to understand their intersection.
