Dr Elizabeth Richardson [Liz]

Since 2007 I have been based at the Institute of Geography in the School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh. I am a health geographer and my research focusses on the spatial determinants of health and health-related behaviours. I am interested in how the environments in which we live, work and play can influence our health, for better or for worse.

I work collaboratively with colleagues at the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, as part of the Centre for Research on Environment, Society and Health (CRESH). You can follow CRESH activities on Twitter: @CRESHnews.

Follow the links on the left of this page to find out more about my work. The pinnacle of my career so far has been having my research recognised as being of interest to the readership of the UK tabloid 'The Sun': read all about it.
