Senior Researcher and Programme Manager at the Centre for Wellbeing, New Economics Foundation, London. We believe that societies aiming to achieve high wellbeing for all (defined as people's experience of their lives), instead of continuous economic growth, are more likely to be sustainable, and that understanding the determinants of wellbeing is key to achieving a positive degrowth economy. I am particularly interested in how the role that values play in driving us towards economic growth, and the links between values and wellbeing.
