Didn't spot this elsewhere on the forum, but Sophie Wilson was on the Boxing Day edition of Christmas University Challenge, representing Selwyn College, Cambs.

Indeed so. I found her potted biography a bit much; I can only assume they felt the 'general public' wouldn't otherwise have a clue who she was.

Because it's the four highest-scoring winning teams that get through to the next round we don't yet know whether she will be appearing again later in the competition.

Thanks for that - can view it here. I was pleased to get the maths one right... couldn't get anything else.

Edit: from Sophie's intro, the ARM1:

I was at my Mum's place over Christmas. Normally, I never watch TV.

Me: "...that's Sophie!"
Mum: "Sophie who?"
Me: "Sophie Wilson. One of the people who designed the ARM."
Mum: "You know her, then?"
Me: "Well, I've shared a bouncy castle with her."
Mum: "..."
