I gained my first degree in Human Genetics at the Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand and then a D.Phil at the La Trobe University in Melbourne . I then took up a senior case manager position at Major Crime section of the Biological Sciences Group at Forensic Services Department of Victoria Police. In this role, I gained my certification in the areas of body fluids, advanced bloodstain pattern analysis, crime scene management, DNA typing, analysis and reporting in Court. In this role I have managed major crime cases from crime scene attendance to writing reports and providing evidence in Court. During this time, I have developed my research portfolio with special interest in trace DNA, DNA transfer, prevalence and persistence and shedder categorization with numerous publications in international peer reviewed journals.
