Biography

Eilidh is a lecturer in Anatomy at the University of Glasgow. She completed her PhD in Juvenile Facial Identification at the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification, University of Dundee.

Her research focussed on the growth and development of the juvenile face and considered potential methods of identification from facial photographs. Following this, she continued to research facial identification methods at Face Lab, Liverpool John Moores University on an MoD-funded project. During this time, she was part of a team providing training courses in facial image comparison and 3D laser scanning.

She then took up an opportunity to travel to the USA, after being awarded a fellowship to conduct research at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency in Hawaii. She provided identification services to the Department of Defense for skeletal remains recovered from WWII, Korean, and Vietnam wars, and her research focussed specifically on the segregation and identification of a large commingled assemblage from the Korean War.

Eilidh is a Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) and a Level III accredited Forensic Anthropologist.
