 Biography: Elizabeth completed her Bachelor of Science in Public Health from Babcock University and graduated from University College Cork in 2021 with a Master of Public Health. She holds First Class Honours in both degrees.

In 2017, she enlisted in the National Youth Service Corps, where she was assigned to the Evangel Fistula Center to work as a research assistant. After her service was over, she continued to work with the Christoffel Blinden Mission Women's Health Programme as a research officer. Elizabeth received research expertise in a variety of fields, and after COVID-19 emerged, she worked as a surveillance officer with Public Health departments in the South and Midwest, supporting the development of surveillance capacity at all levels across the country.

Elizabeth is funded by the HRB- SPHeRE programme and is currently pursuing a PhD in Population Health and Health Service Research at the School of Public Health and INFANT Research Centre. Her doctoral research focuses on the long-term risk of maternal mental health outcomes after pregnancy and birth complications.

Her PhD title is: Exploring the Impact of Pregnancy and Birth Complications on Adverse Long-term Maternal Mental Health Outcomes. She is currently supervised by an incredible team of Dr. Fergus McCarthy, Dr. Karen O’Connor, Dr Karen Matvienko-Sikar, and Dr Ali Khashan.
