Speakers: Professor Carolyn Roberts

Scientific research can assist the police in identifying the pathways followed by murder victims as they sink into, or float along in, rivers and canals. Drawing upon some of the macabre examples on which she has worked, Prof Roberts will talk about these inquiries, explain how she first started undertaking this type of consultancy work, and reflect on the challenges of applying hydrological principles to floating bodies. While the detail may be unnerving, the science should intrigue the curious.

Refreshments are served from 6.00 p.m. on the day of the lecture.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
