Liza Hoveling is an epidemiologist and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Twente. Additionally, she holds an external position at the Netherlands Comprehensive Cancer Organisation (IKNL). She earned her Bachelor's degree in Health Sciences at the University of Twente and her Master's degree in Nutrition and Health, specializing in Epidemiology and Public Health, at the Wageningen University.

In 2022, Liza successfully completed her Ph.D. at the University Medical Center Groningen. Her doctoral thesis, titled "Unraveling socioeconomic health inequalities - targets for preventing metabolic syndrome and major depressive disorder," unveiled several key findings. Socioeconomic position has a strong influence on health disparities in metabolic syndrome and depressive disorders, primarily through educational level and to a lesser extent through income and occupational prestige. Having sufficient income is considered crucial for improving the lifestyle of people in poverty. These differences are mainly attributable to higher smoking rates, poorer health literacy, and weaker social connections in lower socioeconomic groups. To reduce these inequalities, interventions should focus on healthier lifestyles, improved health literacy, and promoting better social connections, especially for individuals with lower educational levels.

Currently, Liza's research activities revolve around the study of women's health and the investigation of diagnostic delays in cancer among women. Her focus includes analyzing patient behaviors and the practices of healthcare professionals in this context.
