Dean Shamess (he/him)

Ph.D. Candidate - Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

University of Saskatchewan



I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Public Policy at JSGS. My research aims to better understand the processes and institutions that drive scientific production and prosperity, using methods from across the social sciences. From these understandings I hope to develop applied, policy-relevant insights that can benefit everyone.

When I'm not doing metascience, I'm probably thinking about chess, Dungeons & Dragons (3E) or listening to the soundtrack from Sid Meier's Civilization VI.
