Currently Master student of Economic and Econometrics and Research Assistant at the University of Bristol. My main interests are the link between Philosophy and Economics, the underlying values and available choices and the limitations thereof imposed by the economic reality we live in today. With a particular interest in the impact of neoclassical economics on consumption, well-being and the environment, and a desire to explore creative alternatives to the neoclassical approach for the future of the international society of tomorrow.

I studied at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) for my Bachelor in Economics, where my interest for environmental matters as well as the effects of our current economic thought on individual decision making, led me on to do a master of science at the LSE (London School of Economics) in the Philosophy of Social Sciences.
Since then I have worked as a research assistant for environmental consultancies in London and Paris, but felt that the current economic fixes available in response to the environmental challenge ahead were to restrictive. Hence I am now trying to widen my knowledge in economic theory and practice, in the hope that it will make it possible for me to contribute to the search of ecologically viable and socially desirable change.
