Mr Hyesop Shin
- Research Associate (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)
Hyesop Shin is a quantitative geographer interested in environmental hazards, urban air quality, GIScience, agent-based modelling (ABM), and open-source research. Hyesop completed his PhD at the University of Cambridge where his project looked at how air pollution and urbanisation can affect pedestrian’s exposure and the health consequences followed by the cumulative exposure using ABM. Prior to joining the SPHSU, Hyesop worked as a research associate at the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences to understand how the users are demographically biased in crowdsourcing platforms and how these biases affect the outcomes. At the SPHSU, Hyesop is passionate to investigate the mobility of obese adolescents around Scotland using ABM and relevant skillsets.
