I’m interested in conceptualizing and measuring well-being; focusing on harmony in life, satisfaction with life, happiness and meaning in life. This interest also involves examining how we can pursue sustainable well-being: How pursuing different kinds of well-being might bring about different social and environmental consequences. The picture below shows how individuals describe their pursuit of harmony and satisfaction differently.

I’m a researcher in Psychology interested in measuring psychological constructs with words and text responses analyzed with AI. In particular I’m interested in how this method can be used in clinical settings to assessment mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. I’m also interested in researching well-being, harmony in life and sustainable living. I’m currently funded for an international postdoc at the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University and the University of Copenhagen.
