Professor Caroline Wilkinson is a graduate of the University of Manchester, where she also led the unit of art in medicine from 2000 – 2005 and received a NESTA fellowship to develop a 3D computerised facial reconstruction system for use in forensic and archaeological depiction.

Professor Wilkinson is the Director of the Face Lab, a Liverpool John Moores University research group based in Liverpool Science Park. The Face Lab carries out forensic/archaeological research and consultancy work and this includes craniofacial analysis, facial depiction and forensic art. Craniofacial analysis involves the depiction and identification of unknown bodies for forensic investigation or historical figures for archaeological interpretation.

Professor Wilkinson’s high profile facial depiction work includes facial depictions of Richard III, St Nicholas, J.S Bach, Ramesses II and Mary, Queen of Scots.
