Shaun began working at SCHE as a research assistant in March 2016 after completing his PhD at Swansea University in 2014 and spending a short amount of time as a big data analyst in the insurance industry.  Shaun’s background in economics provides a wide skill set including the interpretation of empirical evidence with theory and is experienced at utilising econometric evaluation and modelling concepts to provide outcomes transferable to real-world solutions.

Shaun is working on various studies based in Swansea and elsewhere including the ReMemBrIn study, a group memory rehabilitation intervention for those with traumatic brain injury, with the Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit.
