Eleri is a Lecturer of Ancient History and Archaeology at the University of St Andrews. She is interested in the role played by ritual and religion in the construction of provincial society and identity in the Roman Empire, and is currently writing a monograph based on her doctoral research on the Roman sanctuary site at Aquae Sulis (modern Bath, UK), which will use a broad range of archaeological, iconographic, and epigraphic evidence to re-evaluate the nature of the Roman-period sanctuary at Bath and its place within the wider religious and cultural contexts of the North-West provinces of the Roman Empire.

Eleri was the recipient of the 2009 Senior Prize in Archaeology and Philology. In 2010, she moved to Wolfson College, Cambridge, for an MPhil in Classics, and then to St John’s College, Cambridge for her PhD, which she completed in 2016.
