Lisa has recently earned a PhD in Multi-Disciplinary Gender Studies from the University of Cambridge. Her PhD thesis focused on the Women’s Equality Party (WEP) in the UK. She examined its struggle to utilise its standing as a political party to ensure that women’s interests are represented. Discourse analysis, interviews, and participatory action research – along with comparisons made to feminist/women’s political parties in Iceland and Sweden – were carried out to understand WEP’s aim to ‘put itself out of business’.

Lisa is involved in various initiatives to bring about gender equality and strives to apply a gendered lens to geopolitical and security issues. Since 2020 she has participated in UN Women activities as a National Gender Youth Activist. She has contributed to several projects relating to gender and disarmament with the UN Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs. Additionally, Lisa has recently begun her tenure as a Royal United Services Institute Next Generation Ambassador.
