Shannen Vallesi

Research Associate

Shannen Vallesi is a Research Associate at both the School of Population and Global Health and the Centre for Social Impact at the University of Western Australia (UWA). She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Health Science in 2014 (Majoring in Public Health and Human Biology), and commenced her PhD in 2018.

Shannen’s research is underpinned by a passion for reducing health inequalities through ‘real world’ relevant research, specifically around addressing disparities for some of the most disadvantaged people in Australia. Her work primarily focuses on the impact of interventions addressing the complex and intertwined nature of homelessness, poor physical and mental health outcomes, and social exclusion.

Shannen has been a co-lead on the evaluation of Perth's first Housing First project 50 Lives 50 Homes and various other health-led responses to ending homelessness.
