Welfare and Inequality, Education and Language, Evidence and Methods


Liz's research looks at understanding the most significant factors affecting educational outcomes by conceptualising these as linked in a dynamic and interconnected system. 

This framework can help provides insight into the effects of education policy interventions, and allows policy-makers to test their mental models in areas where intervention may be difficult or unethical. 

Her current research is focussed on using system dynamics methods in the context of Australia.

Liz also has experience of working in policy for the UK Government Office for Science. She has a Bachelors of Chemical Engineering from the University of New South Wales, and a Masters of Science Communication from Imperial College London.
