  • Lincoln Cafe Scientifique | Battling against bias in forensic science

    Location: Caffe Portico, Lincoln
    Audience: All welcome
    Booking/Further details: https://lncn.ac/q2
    Details:  Lincoln Cafe Scientifique encourages understanding and debate about topical scientific research in an informal setting. Speakers present a short talk on an area of science in which they have been involved which is then followed by questions.  

    How does the context of a case influence decisions taken by forensic scientists? Does knowing personal details about the alleged perpetrator or victim affect scientific findings? Unconscious biases are part of what makes us human, and no-one, not even forensic scientists, is immune to them. Hilary will explain how high-profile miscarriages of justice, and research into cognitive forensics have thrown a spanner into the works. And, more importantly what can be done about bias, particularly in her own field of forensic toxicology.
