Liz is a sociologist with a background in social and political philosophy who is interested in exploring how the humanities and social sciences can be best used to understand and address the most 'wicked' problems of the 21st century.
After completing her PhD at the University of Cambridge, Liz created, led and taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses in sociology and gender studies at ARU. She co-authored the text book Introducing Social Theory (Polity Press).
More recently, she has focused on the importance of encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration for social justice and environmental sustainability. What need to stop, start and happen more often across our different conversations between and within the natural and human sciences to encourage the curiosity and change all the evidence tells us is needed?
