Summary

I am currently in my second year of studying Forensic Biology at Staffordshire University. My final project during third year will be related to chemical damage to fibres. As of summer 2016 I will be looking for forensic related laboratory work, chemical damage, glass fracture and blood spatter analysis being my current interests. I am ultimately looking to work as a forensic biologist, both in the UK and abroad.
