On the evening of Ada Lovelace Day this year – Tuesday 11th October 2016 – Edinburgh Napier University, with Equate Scotland, is hosting a public lecture by Professor Caroline Wilkinson, Director of the Face Lab at Liverpool John Moores University. Caroline will be speaking about her varied career and how it has combined science with a number of disciplines including art, forensics, computing and anatomy. She will also make the case for women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM).

Bach and Richard III. Caroline will be familiar to many from her television appearances on programmes such as Meet the Ancestors and History Cold Case.
