Elizabeth (BAppSc PT, PhD) trained as a physiotherapist at the University of Sydney and worked as a clinician for almost 10 years at Prince of Wales Hospital where she specialised in spinal cord injury (SCI) rehabilitation. She obtained her PhD from the University of Sydney in 2020 completing her research at NeuRA and the Kolling Institute.

Elizabeth now works as a Research Fellow in the Spinal Cord Injury Research Centre (SCIRC) at NeuRA. Elizabeth's research investigates neuromodulation in SCI. She is part of a team currently conducting three different clinical trials exploring the effects of transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation on various outcomes such as walking ability, hand and arm function and breathing in chronic SCI.
