Elizabeth is a graduate student at the University of Lethbridge. Elizabeth’s Master’s work included analyzing a series of biochemical models related to glioblastoma cell survival, which resulted in the proposal of several potential chemotherapeutic targets within a specific non-canonical gene expression system. In addition to this work, Elizabeth has also worked on developing a scaling algorithm to identify conditions that validate the steady-state approximation in various chemical and biochemical systems. Elizabeth has analyzed a number of different gene expression systems during her studies which lead to a publication entitled “Small binding-site clearance delays are not negligible in gene expression modeling” in which the behavioural dynamics in models both with and without clearance delays were elucidated and compared. Elizabeth has interests in graph theory, bifurcation analysis, and numerical analysis, among others. Elizabeth enjoys interacting with, learning from, and educating other members of both the scientific and non-scientific communities.
