Lizzie is a teaching fellow in geophysics. She coordinates courses on Science Communication, Physical Processes and the Physics of Planet Earth. Lizzie is assisting with several of the other geophysics courses, including the independent geophysics projects and the field trip to Cyprus, including the data processing of the field data. In addition to these roles, Lizzie is also first year tutor.  

Prior to joining Imperial, Lizzie worked as a postdoctoral researcher at MIT and the University of Cambridge. She concentrated on using seismic waves to study the Earth’s deep interior, linking these seismic observations of the Earth’s mantle and core to processes occurring deep within our planet, as described here

In addition to her roles in the department, Lizzie also sits on the Membership Commitee of the Royal Astronomical Society and is a member of the IRIS Early Career Investigator working group.
