Llorenc O'Prey,
Associate Director

Llorenc also has extensive expertise around research synthesis, including critical research appraisal, systematic review and meta-analysis, and more applied outputs such as Rapid Evidence Assessments. Across several academic and applied outputs, Llorenc has mapped and synthesised the evidence base supporting a range of interventions and support, including domestic violence perpetrator programmes, school choice policies, and the impact of distributing satellite Earth Observation data on social, health and economic outcomes. Underscoring Llorenc’s approach is his firm belief in the importance of reflective practice and rigorous research to inform improvements to policy and practice.

Llorenc holds degrees from the Universities of Oxford and Bristol, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts. Outside of research, Llorenc enjoys breaking bread with family and friends, making his son giggle, and learning how to play the maracas with gusto.

Llorenc holds a detailed understanding of the role and potential of research to inform policy and practice. He has honed and applied a range of advanced numerical data analysis techniques, including bivariate and multi-variate analysis, regression modelling, and meta-analysis. He has developed research designs and statistical controls that have explored the effectiveness of national policies and programmes, including conditionality for the Department for Work and Pensions. He is familiar with both experimental and quasi-experimental study designs, and has taught principles of evidence-based practice at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
