Shea Houlihan is a Marshall Scholar and DPhil candidate in Social Intervention. His research involves developing a conceptual taxonomy of choice architecture ('nudges') within public health and conducting statistical analysis of longitudinal data from choice architecture interventions in alcohol and tobacco use. He is interested in answering the more general question, how long may the effects of nudges be observed?

Shea's academic background spans behavioral economics, data science, and evidence-based social intervention. He graduated with an MSc Social Research Methods from the University of Sussex and Phi Beta Kappa with training in economics and politics from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
