Lin’s research examines the quantification and aggregation of multidimensional human well-being, and its implications for specifying composite indices of well-being and inequality.
The research is motivated by questions about well-being distribution, the trade-offs individuals are willing to make between various dimensions of life, and how to represent these trade-offs in ways consistent with economic principles of fairness and preference heterogeneity.
Lin has an MSc in Environmental Economics and Climate Change from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and a BSc in Economics from University College London.
