I am a behavioural scientist with an interdisciplinary background and an interest in happiness, prosocial behaviour, inequality and policy.

I earned my PhD in Psychology (Behavioural Economics) from City, University of London in January 2020.

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

Before my PhD, I completed an MSc in Behavioural Economics at City, University of London (2014/2015) and a Bachelor in Business Administration at Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina (2006/2010). In between, I worked in the private sector for a few years. 

I use large datasets and experiments to understand how socioeconomic problems shape our wellbeing, choices and behaviour.
