Jack Elliott
Artist & Associate Professor at Cornell University
My name is Jack Elliott, an associate professor at Cornell University where I teach studios on design and conduct research on environmental issues in the built environment. Throughout my academic career, I use the designed object or building, situated in a real-world context, to stimulate discourse, pull technology, and create impactful interventions. I am originally from central Alberta in western Canada where I grew up close to nature, enjoying canoeing, skiing and hiking.

I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics with a minor in sculpture at the University of Alberta (1978), as well as two Master’s degrees, one in architecture (1991) and one in product design (1993) from the University of Calgary. I worked in professional practice for a number of years in
