Society Position: Link Co-ordinatorQualifications/Postnominals:BSc, MSc, PhD, FHEA, MCSFSCurrent Employment: University of Leicester
I am currently an Associate Professor in Criminology at the University of Leicester. I relocated to the UK from Canada in 2006, and previously worked with the Ontario Provincial Police as programme coordinator of a victim services critical incident response team. My research interests focus on the use (and misuse) of forensic science in the criminal justice process, and my PhD research investigated juror decision making about forensic evidence and the role that cognitive biases play in verdict preferences. More recently my work has involved the role of forensic science in humanitarian and human rights investigations, and in 2016 I established the International Crime, Conflict, and Crisis Research Network (www.le.ac.uk/i3crn)
In 2014 I was awarded €2.9 million by the European Commission to establish the INTREPID Forensics (www.intrepid-forensics.eu) doctoral training programme. This funded training network supports ten PhD students who are researching forensic topics across a range of disciplines, in partnership with a number of university and industry partners.
