Who am I?
Researcher, System Thinker

Cambridge Yoga study
Biodiversity & landscape management
I led the design and deployment of NatureBuzz an app designed to understand the connection between subjective well-being and biodiversity. Our goal was to provide the foundation to advise landscape management policies. This environmental psychology project was a collaboration with Cambridge Zoology department and Cambridge Conservation Initiative (CCI).
Open IP Policy research: iMED Project
Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, Project iMED proposed an alternative funding model for medicines, in order to optimise both world-wide access to life saving drugs. While today, when we purchase medicine, we pay simultaneously for the cost of innovation (very expensive) and the cos of production (very cheap), the Remuneration Right Fund model proposed to separate the 2 streams, thus optimising pharmaceutical innovation and allowing anyone to access the medicines they need.
Cambridge Yoga & Well-being study
While working at the Cambridge Prosociality and Wellbeing Lab, at the University of Cambridge, I led a 6 weeks randomised controlled trial, including 200 participants, seeking to understand the impact of yoga on healthy adults' well-being. The results have been published in the journal Psychosocial Intervention,
