Description

I was honoured to participate in Soapbox Science event as one of the speakers in Aberdeen. The event took place on the 26th of May 2018. Soapbox Science promotes women scientists and brings science closer to people, literally to the streets. Scientists from various disciplines and at various stages of their career engage with public for an hour via talks about their research standing on soapboxes situated outdoors. The event in Aberdeen was a part of University of Aberdeen's May Festival. I had a chance to explain differences between dermal and epidermal fingerprints and the application of these in forensic settings. With quite a few people stopping by to listen and ask curious questions, it was a very enjoyable and enriching experience.
