Sean is a data analyst and researcher with professional experience in both academic science and ‘triple-bottom line’ consultancy. He has experience working with both qualitative and quantitative data in a range of research fields, whether they come from large data sets, or qualitative or quantitative data from stakeholder consultation exercises. At NEF Consulting he has been involved in several projects to assess and evaluate outcomes frameworks, and to measure the extent to which interventions have achieved their desired outcomes.
During his six years in academia working at the University of Copenhagen and the University of Edinburgh, Sean managed and led research in research fields overlapping environmental and social sciences. Sean has worked in five countries and was lead researcher on several studies investigating agricultural methods in order to increase environmental sustainability, involving laboratory and field work as well as country-scale surveys with agricultural stakeholders. He has also spent time conducting academic research in Japan, human rights monitoring in Lebanon and teaching English in France.
Sean grew up in South Wales before moving to England for his university studies, after which he received his PhD in Atmospheric and Environmental Science from the University of Edinburgh. He is a proficient French speaker and loves working with and meeting people from different cultures. He is an aspiring guitar player who never quite hit the big time, and an aspiring runner who has never quite reached the top tier of international athleticism. However, that hasn’t stopped him trying.
