Senior Research and Projects Officer
Lizzie’s passion in life has always been the natural world. Her fascination for nature led her to read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, specialising in Zoology; then combining her love for animals and science she carried out a PhD in Clinical Veterinary Sciences in the Animal Welfare and Behaviour research group at the University of Bristol. She has worked for a number of animal welfare charities, before returning to academia, briefly at the University of Oxford and then back at Bristol Veterinary School, where she coordinates a project that aims to increase the proportion of animals farmed to higher welfare standards. Lizzie wants to live in a world where all animals used for food have a good life and a kind death, and where our food is produced in a way that protects the planet and all its inhabitants. She was therefore thrilled to join the SFT team in 2020, to help coordinate their work on the harmonisation of on-farm sustainability assessment, as well as contribute to research and communications activities.
