Dr Lisa Garnham
Public Health Research Specialist


Phone: 0141 330 1924


Please note Lisa works Wednesday-Friday.

Lisa’s background is in health geography, especially the role of place in the relationship between socio-political change and public health.

She is currently working on two main projects. The first is a peer research project in collaboration with Govanhill Baths Community Trust: Community Action, Unity Sisters and Milk Café, in which Lisa is supporting the monitoring and evaluation of the Our Rights, Our Communities project. The second is a secondment at SIPHER (Systems science in Public Health and Health Economics Research), in which Lisa is researching policy processes and the evidence needs of policy makers, particularly in relation to housing.

Lisa’s previous work at the Centre has included collaborative projects on housing and wellbeing with the University of Stirling and Glasgow Caledonian University, the evaluation of Sistema Scotland’s ‘Big Noise’ children’s orchestras as a social intervention, as well as the Neighbourhood Change project, which involved working with peer researchers and using creative methods of data collection.  Before joining the Centre, Lisa worked in the third sector.
