Pursue your research studies with a pioneering group in analysis-based research and make a valuable contribution to scientific understanding and techniques in the forensics field.
Forensic science is well-established as a discipline at Anglia Ruskin. We’ve strong links with the major users and thought leaders in the field, including the Forensic Science Society, Police and Fire Service.
Our focus is on analytical science in its broadest sense and we can accommodate a variety of research proposals. Here’s a brief overview of our research specialisms and interests:
- environmental samples, including ground water and soil
- human and animal hair, including feathers
- archaeological artefacts
- drugs and other toxins
- glass and other materials of forensic interest.
Our up-to-date analytical equipment includes advanced optical and electron microscopes, IR, Raman and X-ray spectrometers, GC-MS, GC, ion chromatography, HPLC, AAS, ICP-OES and XRD. We recently opened a new stable isotope facility.
Expert supervision, comprehensive research training and extensive facilities are all part of the package – and there’s a lively academic environment that values and involves its research students.
