Liz Robson joined CURDS in September 2000 as a research associate, leaving in 2004 to work for the Regional Development Agency as a skills and employment analyst.  She has returned as a visiting fellow supporting the work of Ranald Richardson and the SiDE project which aims to tackle social exclusion by making it easier for people to access the life-changing benefits offered by digital technologies.

Her research interests include the impact of the cultural industries, culture-led regeneration and technolgies on occupational transitions, economic inclusion and regional prosperity. She has also worked on successful projects to effectively organise and network individuals through web-enabled technologies.
