Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi everyone!

I'm a Northwestern Freshman teaching a class about Forensics this year. I was interested in the topic in high school and there was a lot of interest for it at the NU Splash event so I thought I'd bring it to Rainstorm!

S544: Who Done It - An Introduction to Forensic Science in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
How do forensic scientists figure out what happened at a crime scene from looking at the evidence? We will be learning the basics of different modes of forensic analysis, from fingerprinting to weapons analysis to fiber analysis, and how they can be used to solve a crime. Through the examination of a mock crime scene, we will attempt to solve a "murder" by applying forensic skills to a problem. We will also learn about the role forensic science plays in the justice system, and how forensic science fails.
