Nicole Iroz-Elardo, PhD

University of Arizona
Assistant Research Professor
Cross-trained in planning and public health, her research focuses on how to plan healthier and more equitable communities. Dr. Iroz-Elardo has a PhD in Urban Studies from Portland State University. Her doctoral research investigated the extent to which Health Impact Assessment provided an additional participation avenue for vulnerable communities in transportation planning processes. She has previously worked for Urban Design 4 Health, Inc., Oregon Health Authority, and Battelle Memorial Institute. At each, she specialized in translating cutting-edge research into practitioner tools to increase the suite of information upon which decisions - public and private - are made. Current research interests include understanding the trade-offs between dense environments, physical activity, environmental exposures, and affordable housing; and monetizing the health impacts of transportation and land use decisions.
