Dr Elisa Roma

Research Fellow


I have eight years of experience working in the field of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) as an academic researcher, undertaking research and evaluations to change WASH policy and practice. Since 2007, I have lived and worked in numerous developing countries, building a publication portfolio in the area of WASH and health and advising a number of national and local governments on issues relating to WASH policy, particularly behaviour change in sanitation. I am currently working as Research Fellow and until 2015 I have been Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist for the SHARE Consortium.
