    Ep 20: Image processing, treating cataracts with lasers, and Caroline Herschel

    This month, we talk to mathematician Dr Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb about how she uses maths in image processing. And amateur astronomer Hilary Harper-Abernethy talks about the life and works of astronomer Caroline Herschel.

    Our invention of the month is the Laserphaco Probe, a device that uses lasers to remove cataracts, by Dr Patricia Bath.

    The Ada Lovelace Day podcast highlights the work of women in STEM. We talk to women from around the STEM world about their careers, as well as talking to women and men about historic and modern women’s achievements, discoveries, and inventions. This will be our last episode for a while, as we focus on other projects.

Excellent podcast highlighting women's achievements in science and technology

I always come away from this podcast having learned something new. I love hearing from women working in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) whose work sounds so exciting but also so achievable for anyone with a drive and enthusiasm. My favourite section, however, is hearing about the women who have inspired people as it really highlights how big a role women have played in STEM and it's wonderful to hear them getting their dues at long last.
