Dr Rachael Liebmann graduated from Queen’s University Belfast in 1991 and is vice President of the Royal College of Pathologists, a specialist breast pathologist and Deputy Medical Director at the Queen Victoria Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. In 2018 Rachael was voted one of world’s 100 most influential pathologists according to The Pathologist Magazine Power List, and in 2017 she was awarded the Royal College of Pathologists Medal for distinguished service, the highest accolade the College can bestow on one of its Fellows.
Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM. Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer, known for her work on Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her vision of computing’s possibilities was unmatched by any of her peers and went unrecognised for a century.
