Eva Elliott was a senior university lecturer at Cardiff University School of Social Sciences, and researcher, at the Wales Institute of Social & Economic Research, Data & Methods (WISERD), until September 2018. She still maintains her academic position and interests as an honorary research fellow.
Eva’s academic interests have focused on health inequalities and the unjust social and economic determinants that sustain these. She has conducted, or advised on, a multiplicity of large scale national evaluations of community or place based interventions, most of which have had some focus on the need for communities to have the collective power to influence change in their neighbourhoods.
She has also held other positions, including Director of the Wales Health Impact Assessment Support Unit (now based within Public Health Wales) and was the academic lead for one of Cardiff University’s flagship engagement projects: Strong Communities, Healthier People.
