I am a masters student at MSc in Brain and Mind Sciences at UCL, where I have also completed the BASc in Arts and Sciences. I’m interested in how the study of the neural basis of decision-making and the factors that influence it can inform the efforts to address complex social issues such as inequality and climate change. I’m currently working on a project that is looking at how social inequality impacts individuals’ productivity and wellbeing.
