Isabelle Champion


Isabelle is working across our research and development programme, as the lead on the ODI’s work on peer-to-peer accommodation and working with our commercial partners.

Her expertise covers service design, innovation and facilitation. She has a background in research and community engagement, and as a result she loves getting people excited about data.

Before joining the ODI Isabelle, worked in the social housing sector for 5 years, most recently as a Research and Innovation Lead at Viridian Housing. During her time there she led a range of projects including research on welfare reform, process mapping work across the business, and winning the Housing Series of the Open Data Challenge Series along with her team.

Isabelle has an LLB in Law and French Law from University College London, and is currently studying for an MSc in Policy Research from the University of Bristol. When not reading about feminism and social justice, she takes pretentious film photographs and makes her own clothes.
