Liz currently lectures in public health, and undertakes research in policy analysis in Australia and abroad using health economic methodologies.

She was previously a senior researcher at the University of Oxford, where she also taught in the masters in global health programme. Her research focused on the economic aspects of perinatal and paediatric health care and she evaluated the cost-effectiveness of health innovations funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR UK). More recently, since moving to Australia, her research areas have broadened to include integrated care, mental health, disability and perinatal care.
