She's more at home with dead bodies than with social media.
But world-renowned forensic anthropologist and University of Dundee Professor Sue Black will be taking to Twitter next week to lead a live Q&A session with future students.
Alongside her Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification colleagues - Dr Craig Cunningham and Dr Lucina Hackman - the OBE awarded academic will use the hashtag #CAHIDQ&A to chat with people via Twitter on Monday.
The Twitter-based event is aimed at those who are considering studying at the award-winning centre, where Professor Black is the director.
Recognised as one of the world’s foremost institutions for the study of human anatomy, forensic human identification and disaster victim identification, the centre was awarded the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher Education last year .
It has developed techniques that have led to successful prosecutions in a number of child sexual abuse cases, and is recognised as a leader in craniofacial identification and forensic facial reconstruction, something used recently on King Richard III.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for students to engage with one of the world’s top scientists in her field,” said Dr Hackman, who is the programme leader for the MSc in anatomy and advanced forensic anthropology.
“Professor Black is an inspirational figure who has pushed the boundaries of forensic anthropology and made a real difference to the lives of thousands of people across the world.
“Dr Cunningham and I will also be talking about some of the world-leading work taking place at CAHID as well as answering questions about student life at Dundee.
"We would encourage anyone thinking about studying for a forensic degree to take part and find out the exceptional opportunities that the University offers.
"All you need to do to take part in the live discussion is direct your query to our Twitter feed using the correct hashtag.”
Professor Black was awarded an OBE for war crimes investigations in Kosovo and was also awarded the Lucy Mair medal in recognition of the humanitarian aspect of her work.
She is the lead forensic anthropology adviser to the Home Office of the UK Government.
Dr Cunningham is the programme director for the MSc Forensic Anthropology.
He works with undergraduate and postgraduate students and his research involves investigating the human skeleton and applying this knowledge to the identification process.
Dr Hackman is the programme leader for the MSc in Anatomy and Advanced Forensic Anthropology, and is also involved in police and CSI training.
Her research interests include age estimation and she undertakes regular forensic case work.
