I'm a lecturer in economics at the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University working on how wellbeing and happiness is used in public policy and welfare economics. I teach development economics, applied policy and economics for political scientists. I will be moving to the Brookings Institution in Washington DC as a Fulbright Fellow from August 2019.
