Lizzie is leading The Work Foundation's work on innovation in cities for the cities 2020 programme. She will also be running one of the bottom ten million research strands, looking at the clustering of highly skilled workers in particular cities and regions and what this means for those with low skill levels.
Her research interests include welfare reform, labour market exclusion and economic growth.
Before joining The Work Foundation, Lizzie worked for Shared Intelligence, where she specialised in economic development, employment and skills. She has conducted academic research on welfare reform, labour market policy and the rise of Incapacity Benefit claimants.
Lizzie graduated in Sociology and has a master's degree in Social Science Research Methods, both from the University of Glasgow.
