Start date: October 2019
Research topic: Health Economics: Investigating social contagion of mental illness.
I am interested in investigating whether there exist spill-over effects between individuals’ mental health, particularly within the household context and in the workplace. Besides, the Internet has become part of our life. I am also interested in exploring the relationship of internet use to mental illness.
