Elizabeth Peel

I'm Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor, Loughborough Doctoral College, and Professor of Communication and Social Interaction, School of Social Sciences.

I did my PhD at Loughborough in the late 1990s/early 2000s. I enjoy spending time with my family, visiting new places, and running. Currently, I'm on the quest for the hundred marathon club vest - which is a good occupation outside of work. All being well, I should make it to 100 in 2021.

International Women’s Day is a collective effort for a better world for all, and a celebration. The theme this year is a better gender balance. Gender is part of the picture, but not the whole story - a ‘better balance’ across a host of characteristics such as social class, ethnicity, sexuality and disability is something we should strive for.
