Sarah joined CEP in September 2014 as a Research Officer. Her research interests include applied microeconomics, labour, education and behavioural economics. Together with Richard Layard, Andrew Clark, and Nattavudh Powdthavee plus other CEP researchers, she is involved in a project to build a model of determinants of wellbeing over the life-course. This includes the individual's subjective wellbeing as well as objective outcomes like education, employment, income and parenting - and the interaction between them and wellbeing. Sarah completed her PhD in economics at Paris School of Economics in October 2014 and was a visiting PhD Student at CEP in 2012-2013. She previously worked as a consultant at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
