Personal profile

Research interests

Eli is interested in opening up research processes to better understand the interactions and connections present across inter-/trans-disciplinary research.  She has joined TRUUD as a lead researcher for the meta-research and evaluation work package (WP6).  TRUUD provides an exciting opportunity to learn how a multidisciplinary consortium approaches the challenge of research and real-world interventions in complex urban systems.  Eli’s role is to work collaboratively across the consortium to better understand and characterise transdisciplinary research with the aim of enhancing TRUUD research impact. 


Prior to TRUUD, Eli conducted meta-research on the RCUK-funded Urban Living Partnership project ‘Urban ID’ to see how researchers and partners perceived and interacted with the research project. Urban ID aimed to take a city-wide view of Bristol and study the key barriers to it becoming a better place to live. The project worked across multiple disciplines and sectors and with community partners embedded in the city. The project employed a mix of co-production, learning journeys and systems approaches to develop a framework which brought different viewpoints and led, through an EPRSC IAA, into the development of a ‘Many Neighbourhoods, One City’ approach to peer-to-peer learning and coordination. 


Eli is a trained architect (MNAL) and theorist with a ‘PhD by Practice’ which investigated and supported the master planning process of Norway’s first carbon neutral and socially sustainable suburb. Through this project she worked with different disciplines, sectors, publics and municipal government and developed an interest in how we can communicate better and develop knowledge across different agendas and silos.


Whilst working mainly in an inter-/trans-disciplinary research environment Eli also remains active in architecture circles. She has conducted meta-research with architects exploring their public behaviours and interactions in practice-based research (ADAPT-r ITN) and recently been part of a working group developing the Royal Institute of British Architect’s Social Value Toolkit for Architecture.
