I am currently a postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard Kennedy School and a Research Affiliate at the Wellbeing Research Centre at the University of Oxford. 

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 two questions: 1) how macroeconomic factors shape people's wellbeing, and 2) how inequalities influence people's wellbeing and behaviour. To study these topics, I use large-scale datasets and experiments as well as a wide variety of statistical methods.
