About Us

Elizabeth F. Hall. I trained as a physician in Ireland and completed higher specialist training in Public Health Medicine in the UK. I also hold a PhD in Clinical Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. I have worked in clinical, policy and academic settings in Ireland, the UK and Canada, and am currently an Independent Scholar. My current research draws on the anthropology of knowledge and meta-research in epidemiology, and explores scientific knowledge practices and problems in contexts of ‘usefulness’. I am particularly interested in interdisciplinarity, accountability and reproducibility. I can be reached at lisa.hall [at] utoronto.ca

I am also a Research Associate with the Environmental Governance Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs, and a Member of the Science and Democracy Network at Harvard’s Kennedy School. My interest in the anthropology of knowledges is longstanding and has given life to a range of projects over the past twenty some years. I can be reached at todd.sanders [at] utoronto.ca
