In 2014 she returned to the Centre to work on the Future vision project with Thomas Pocklington Trust, co-creating Low Vision Aids with young people. Currently, Elizabeth is working as a Project Researcher on two automotive projects; the Future London Taxi and Greenwich Automated Transport Environment (GATEway) project. Elizabeth also supports the RCA External education programme, creative leadership workshops and AcrossRCA projects.
