Summary

My academic background is mostly in social science, public health, and health economics. I recently co-authored a chapter of the 2019 Global Happiness and Wellbeing Policy Report, and help prioritise efforts to improve human wellbeing as a volunteer with the Happier Lives Institute. I'm currently employed as a Research Assistant at Rethink Priorities, where I work primarily on animal welfare, mental health, and grant evaluation.
