Biography

My name is Eilidh Selfridge, and I am currently a fourth-year undergraduate medical student at the University of Dundee. In the previous academic year, I completed an intercalated BMSc in Forensic and Legal Medicine under the supervision of Dr Helen Brownlow of the Centre for Forensic and Legal Medicine.

Alcohol places a large burden on our health services but without being able to accurately quantify intake, it is difficult for the public to drink at a safe level. My research project aimed to assess the ability of the general public to accurately free-pour a given volume of alcohol and therefore accurately estimate their alcohol intake.
