Eleonora is Head of Digital and Tech Innovation at Reform, a Westminster based think tank. She started at there in June 2015 and has been involved with a wide variety of research projects ranging from assessing current issues with ways of measuring of public sector productivity to developing a model for performance assessment within prison using data envelopment analysis. Her work now focuses on how tech innovations can help deliver public service reforms. She believes that tech should not be seen as something that should simply be plastered over existing processes. Instead, it should be seen as a tool that should, if appropriate, be integrated into service transformation plans. Health tech is one of her main areas of interest.
