Ms Liz Jones profile picture
  • Associate Professor (Teaching)
  • Dept of Civil, Environ &Geomatic Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Liz Jones is Vice-Dean Elect (Education) for the Faculty of Engineering Sciences, and Director of Studies for the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE). The latter role has oversight of all taught programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level, including admissions, outreach, student support and experience, and accreditation. It also includes responsibilities as Chair of the Exam Boards and Departmental Teaching Committee. 

Liz is an Associate Professor (Teaching) and is in the Geomatics Section in CEGE; specialising in Surveying and GIS, and providing consultancy both in technical and educational capacities. Liz enjoys undertaking surveying and archaeological fieldwork and supervises research projects relating to applications of GIS to civil engineering, health and safety in Civil Engineering and the Construction sector, community engagement in Civil Engineering, and to issues of diversity and inclusivity in industry and Higher Education.

Liz joined the Geomatics Section of the CEGE department in 2008 after working as a surveyor in the 3D team of Plowman Craven. She completed a BA in Egyptian Archaeology (UCL), MA in Egyptology (Liverpool) and an MSc in GIS (UCL). She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Liz welcomes opportunities to discuss industry partnerships that enhance the student experience, and is happy to discuss potential collaborations for training and course development both within and external to HE. Contact may be made by the various media given here. 
Research Summary

Liz is a member of the Photogrammetry, 3D Imaging and Metrology research group with research interests in surveying, GIS and laser scanning. She combines her background in archaeology with her technical expertise, through fieldwork and research in landscape archaeology, particularly in the applications of geomatics to the understanding of past environments, predominantly in Egypt. Liz also conducts research within the field of engineering education. 

Liz is engaged in fieldwork and GIS development for the Gurob Harem Palace Project [University of Liverpool, UCL & University of Copenhagen], and she is building a Saqqara GIS with data acquired during fieldwork on the Saqqara Geophysical Survey Project [National Museums of Scotland].  Most recently, she has joined the EES Imbaba Survey team.

Liz has carried out AHRC-funded research into the development of a research-oriented GIS for the site of Saqqara, and conducted a study analysing archaeological and historical evidence for flood events and flood risk within the inner Thames estuary during the Holocene Period. She has also worked on the Kouphovouno Project (nr Sparta, Greece) and the EES Survey of Memphis (Egypt).

She supervises projects on a range of geomatic, geographic and cultural heritage topics, and also on health and safety, and community engagement in the civil engineering industry. Recent projects include: the use of laser scanning for sensor offset determination for hydrographic survey vessels (in conjunction with the Port of London Authority); advising on the development of a GIS for historic salt-production sites in Belize.

She has been awarded studentships to investigate the use of open-source GIS in the undergraduate engineering curriculum, to develop new GIS teaching material and to review personal tutoring in the department.
