Liz completed her Master of Psychology (Industrial and Organisational) at the University of Western Australia in 2008. Her thesis reviewed the factor structure of the Maslach Burnout Inventory. Since completing her degree Liz has worked as an Organisational Psychologist in a range of different industries - private, government, not-for-profit, clean energy, and health regulation. Liz's experience in organisational diagnostics, team development, high performance, business alignment, and strategy development supports her ability to take postgraduate students on a journey from student to practitioner.
Liz's main research interests since commencing at UWA have been in diversity, gender and recruitment. She has been involved in the review of recruitment strategy for emergency service organisations in understanding public and worker perceptions of gender in emergency environments. Liz has supervised more than 40 work placement projects which are designed to develop evidence based recommendations to improve or resolve problems in the workplace. Liz has additional research interests in evaluation of internship programs, team work, and work design.
Currently, as a lecturer at UWA, Liz teaches four units into the Master of Psychology (Industrial and Organisational) program in the School of Psychological Science. She is also responsible for managing the placement program and providing supervision for the Master of Psychology (Industrial & Organisational) students which involves placing each student in three different work locations throughout their degree in order to meet the 1,000 hour practical requirement. In addition to these roles Liz is the program director for the Master of Psychology (Industrial & Organisational) course. Despite being in a teaching intensive role, Liz is developing a research portfolio and developing opportunities to integrate research with industry partners, such as Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES).
