Having graduated in Vocal Performance from Trinity College, London, Elizabeth traveled to St. Louis to pursue a career in music. Eventually, she found her way with her family to California, drawn by the lovely weather and magnificent Pacific Ocean. When not doing yoga, gardening, or walking her black Labrador, she can be found at Davies Symphony Hall singing with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. She is excited to be part of the Carnegie Institution for Science, department of global ecology, supporting Ken Caldeira and his awesome group of postdocs.
