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 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 to understand how socioeconomic problems shape our wellbeing, choices and behaviour. In particular, I use large-scale datasets and experiments to explore the wellbeing and behavioural consequences of income and gender inequality as well as the circumstances that influence people's generosity.
