My research is focused on the economics of subjective wellbeing, the environment, and productivity.
Through the geo-located experience sampling study Mappiness I have generated a large panel data set — over 4 million responses from more than 64,000 individuals — that provides new lines of evidence off environmental impacts on wellbeing. I am now applying a similar method to investigate wellbeing and productivity within organisations.
Before joining Sussex, I worked at UCL (2011 – 2012). I gained my PhD, on Happiness and environmental quality, at LSE (2007 – 2011), and prior degrees from Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge. I am a co-founder of Psychological Technologies (PSYT Ltd), which seeks to measure and enhance wellbeing and productivity within organisations.
