Professor Paul Dolan is currently Professor of Behavioural Science at the LSE. He is Head of Department in Psychological and Behavioural Science and Director of the Executive MSc in Behavioural Science. There are two main themes to Paul’s work: developing measures of happiness and subjective wellbeing that can be used in policy and by individuals looking to be happier; and considering ways in which the lessons from the behavioural sciences can be used to understand and change individual behaviour. He uses a range of data and methods to address, and to better integrate, these issues, such as surveys, big data, lab studies, and field experiments. Paul is author of the best-selling and acclaimed book Happiness By Design. His new book, Happy Ever After: Escaping the Myth of the Perfect Life, is out now.
