Liza Cornet is a postdoc researcher at the Institute of Education and Child Studies, Leiden University. As of 2018, she is involved as a researcher in the ERC research program "CRIMETIME" led by Prof. Dr. Jean-Louis van Gelder. This research project focuses on the development of a virtual reality and smartphone intervention for young delinquents.

In the following three years she worked at the Scientific Research and Documentation Center (WODC) of the Ministry of Justice and Security where she investigated the added value of neuroscientific knowledge within the juvenile criminal justice context and the possibilities of ‘Quantified Self’ methods (including smartwatches) for the judicial context.
