Akash WasilOxfordwasil@sas.upenn.eduScalable mental health interventions, digital mental health, global mental health, effective givingInterventions, online experiments, and field experiments relating to mental health, effective giving, promoting EA, and other EA-aligned topics.I have been working with professors at Penn on a short (45-60 min) online mental health promotion intervention that's based on CBT and positive psychology. We're currently conducting trials with HS students and college students in the US, India, Kenya, and Greece. Would love to connect with people who are interestd in learning more about the intervention, testing/disseminating it, etc!

Also: Intervention design & dissemination, statistics/R, conducting online experiments relating to mental health and effective giving
