Elizabeth graduated from Stirling University in 2013 with a 1st Class Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Economics. Following this, she went onto the University of Edinburgh where she completed a Master of Science in Economics on the Scottish Graduate Programme for Economics (SGPE).  In 2014 she returned to the University of Stirling and obtained her PhD in Economics in April 2019.  Elizabeth also worked as a Research Assistant for one year, between 2015 and 2016, on the Healthy Ageing In Scotland (HAGIS) pilot study. 

Currently, Elizabeth is a Research Fellow within the Health Economics Group of the Edinburgh Clinical Trials Unit, working on the Colorectal Repository (CORECT-R) project with Dr Peter Hall. The CORECT-R project has established a UK-wide bowel cancer data repository for researchers to analyse the economic impact of bowel cancer in terms of diagnosis, treatments and outcomes.  Elizabeth will be working with this data to provide new evidence on a number of key economic aspects of bowel cancer including the costs of bowel cancer in different cohorts, the efficiency of screening programmes and the costs of different therapies for treatment.
