Women of Trinity Lecture Series: Using Geometry in Engineering

Overview

CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF WOMEN AT TRINITY

Professor Lasenby’s lecture, ‘Using Geometry in Engineering’, will look at a range of applications of geometry in engineering, including: computer vision, computer graphics and structural engineering. It will also make connections with the mathematics of a former Trinity Fellow (1868-1871), William Kingdon Clifford.

This is the third in a new series of lectures given by female Fellows of Trinity,
past and present, to mark the 40th anniversary of women’s admission to the College.


This event is free & open to all – please reserve your place
