She has an interest in freshwater ecological restoration and her recent studies have focused on fluvial environments. During her MSc project, Elizabeth collaborated with the Forth Rivers Trust to conduct habitat suitability surveys on tributaries of the River Teith for the potential reintroduction of the Critically Endangered freshwater pearl mussel. This project gave Elizabeth experience in conducting surveys using the River Habitat Survey, in-situ and lab-based water measurements, statistical analysis in R, and land use map production in ArcGIS Pro. The courses completed by Elizabeth during her MSc furnished her with a variety of skills including communicating academic knowledge and results through a variety of media (e.g., reports, policy briefs, posters, vlogs, and blogs) and the use of various software packages such as R, ArcGIS Pro, Pix4D, HEC-RAS, Orfeo and SNAP.
