My main research interests are in health and environmental economics,
and how economics can be used to support environmental justice and reduce socio-economic inequalities.
My research looks at both the environmental determinants of health and climate related policies,
in particular how they perform and affect individuals.
I am particularly interested in socioeconomic differences in health, the role of environmental exposure in widening inequalities and the existence of co-benefits of environmental policies.
