About me

I am Professor of Behavioural Science and Head of Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science at the LSE. I have worked my entire career at the intersection of economics, psychology, and public policy applications and have developed a number of programmes in this area.

From 2017 to 2020 I was Professor of Economics at University College Dublin. During that period I led the development of MSc in Behavioural Economics and Geary Institute Experimental Lab. I published a number of papers on the connection between mental health and economic outcomes, measuring preferences, and ethical aspects of behavioural policy.

From 2011 to 2016, I was Deputy Dean of Stirling Management School, and led the development of the Stirling Behavioural Science centre. This interdisciplinary group has now run for over 8 years and delivers two MSc programmes in behavioural science and decision making.

From 2005 - 2011, I held a variety of roles of university college, including as assistant professor with a joint appointment between UCD School of Economics and UCD School of Public Health. I was Deputy Director of the UCD Geary Institute, and led the development of a range of project areas, as well as leading a number of long-run empirical projects on health and well-being. I was a Fulbright Fellow at Princeton University during this period.
