Dr. Paul Dolan is Professor of Behavioural Science in the Department of Social Policy at the LSE. There are two main, and related, themes to his work. The first focuses on developing measures of wellbeing that can be used in policy. The second considers ways in which the lessons from the behavioural sciences can be used to understand and change behaviour. He is particularly interested in the use of natural field experiments to address these research themes. Amongst other professional roles, he is Chief Academic Advisor on Economic Appraisal to the UK Government Economic Service, a member of the National Advisory Forum on wellbeing in the UK, and on a National Academy of Sciences Panel on wellbeing in the US.
