Aidan Cashin is a PhD Candidate at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA). His research involves investigating the mechanisms of treatments for chronic low back pain. In particular, using mediation analysis to better understand how treatments work or why they fail. Through his research in mechanism evaluations, Aidan became interested in issues pertaining to research transparency and reproducibility and is currently working with his supervisor Dr. Hopin Lee on a BITSS SSMART grant project: Developing a Guideline for Reporting Mediation Analyses (AGREMA) in randomized trials and observational studies.

Alongside his research, Aidan is an accredited Exercise Physiologist, practicing primarily in the field of rehabilitation for chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions. Aidan also has a casual academic position at the University of New South Wales, within the School of Medical Sciences and is involved in the teaching and evaluating of undergraduate exercise physiology students.
