Description


Shining a light on crime: Applications of spectroscopy to forensic science

Paint, cosmetics, ink. All of these can be forms of forensic evidence that can help detectives to make links between individuals, objects and locations – a critically important part of a criminal investigation. But how to get the most useful information from these types of evidence? This is where chemistry plays an essential role. Join Dr Georgina Sauzier as she explores a key tool of analytical chemistry and how it can be used for analysis of forensic evidence.

About Georgina

Dr Georgina Sauzier works in the fields of forensic science and analytical chemistry at Curtin University. When she isn’t giving lectures on various fingerprint detection techniques, she studies the use of spectroscopic and chromatographic methods to characterize, classify and interpret forensic evidence. She is a lecturer within the School of Molecular Life Sciences at Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia, with a broad background in trace evidence analysis, document examination and latent fingermark detection. She received her PhD in forensic chemistry at Curtin University in 2016, and currently works within the Curtin Institute for Functional Molecules and Interfaces.
