Liz graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a MSc degree in Psychology - conversion award in November 2018. This was successfully completed to undergo a career change from Liz's previous work history in learning and development, within the financial services industry.

Research interests

Liz's research is embedded within the fields of health psychology and public health. In particular, her research investigates health inequalities in relation to bowel cancer prevention. Liz's PhD research explores the effectiveness of interventions which address the barriers and facilitators that influence people's decision-making processes in relation to bowel cancer screening. Her research aims to investigate barriers and associated factors affecting bowel cancer screening intention and uptake, especially amongst low uptake groups. Her dual role of Graduate Teaching Assistant and PhD researcher, among other things, provides a great opportunity for research-led teaching.
