Lockdowns in 2020 saw me continuing to research historical Scottish female scientists, some of which are on the Minerva Scientifica site. I love finding unexpected connections between arts and sciences. I was so excited to discover that composer Isobel Dunlop, was the niece of scientist, Professor Sir D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson, whose descriptions of mathematical patterns in nature have inspired artists for over a century.

……CATHERINE is still working on our EVT PODCAST SERIES, continuing her research (that’s the fun bit) and preparing to produce a book on the topic – lots of work needed yet. She is always keen to hear about women she’s not yet come across….suggestions welcome.
She is a busy trustee of the James Clerk Maxwell Foundation, has made over 100 face masks for friends and family and has found exploring Edinburgh, and finding lots of interesting sights very rewarding. If you visit Edinburgh, be sure to follow her example and see the Colinton Tunnel! (pictured below)
