BEHAVIOURAL CHANGE & WELLBEING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Curbing the Covid-19 pandemic required people to change their daily behaviours and limit social interactions in drastic ways. How did we adapt to such a big behavioural change and how have these changes affected our wellbeing in return?
To answer these questions, I led a study in which we collected multinational survey data from 1000s of people in 5 continents and 12 languages (Arabic, Bangla, German, English, Spanish, French, Hindi, Italian, Persian, Swedish, Turkish, Mandarin).
