Featuring: Lin Anderson, Lorna Dawson, Niamh Nic Daeid, Professor James Grieve and Martin Hall.
Few writers can ignore how forensics has transformed detecting crimes, taking the genre from the puzzle in the library to the minutia under the microscope. Join, author Lin Anderson, creator of forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod, with a panel of professors.
Lorna Dawson is a Principal Soil Scientist who has worked on case investigations with the police and Forensic Science Service, as well as advising on TV shows ‘Vera’ and ‘Silent Witness’. Niamh Nic Daeid is Professor of Forensic Science and Director of Research at the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee.
Professor James Grieve was a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Medicine and a Police Forensic Pathologist. And forensic entomologist Martin Hall has worked as an expert witness on over 30 criminal cases, looking at how maggots can provide vital clues to murder.
