Lecture Theatre A, Physics and Astronomy Building, University of Leicester

Speakers: Dr Suzie Imber

Suzie Imber is a lecturer and research fellow at the at the University of Leicester. She has two passions; science, and high altitude mountaineering. In this talk she will tell the story of how she used her unique combination of skills to fulfil every mountaineer's dream; to be the first person to identify, and then to climb, a series of high mountains in the most remote corner of the Andean mountain range. This is a story about supercomputers, undiscovered Incan ruins, dodging land mines, climbing remote mountains, and battling temperatures cold enough to freeze anti-freeze.

The talk will be preceded at 18:00 in Lecture Theatre C by a facilitated discussion on creativity in science as part of Ada Lovelace Day, celebrating the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths.
