Elizabeth is a ‘science communicator’ by profession; she translates the incomprehensible murmurings of scientists into language and concepts we can all understand. She studied Physics and Maths at Victoria University Wellington before travelling to Imperial College London to do a Masters in Science Communication. On returning to New Zealand in 2009 she was struck by a sense of possibility. She believes New Zealand has the potential to become a world centre for cross-sector collaboration and wants to help discover and promote a new Kiwi culture and identity based on collaboration, creativity, innovation and environmental and social best practice. Being awarded the ‘2009 Prime Minister’s Science Media Communication Prize’ has given her the incredible opportunity to pursue this dream.
