Biography

Eilidh is a senior lecturer in Anatomy at the University of Glasgow. She is the anatomy programme lead for Medicine and Glasgow Access to Medicine Programme (GAP), which won the Times Higher Education Award for widening participation in 2019. She coordinates and teaches anatomy across both professional and BSc degree programmes.

Eilidh 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 certified Forensic Anthropologist who has been involved in forensic casework in both in the UK and Internationally. She is also an elected councillor of the Anatomical Society and currently holds the position of Meetings Officer of the society.
