Personal profile


I hold a DDS (1999), a M.Sc. in Forensic Odontology from the University of Glamorgan (2011) and a PhD in Oral growth and dental development from the Queen Mary University of London (2015). I am a researcher in Forensic Odontology and studied in countries such as Brazil, Italy and the UK. Since 2012, I have been deployed to international disasters and I have been presenting lectures in Africa, Europe, Asia and North/ South America. Currently, I am the Programme lead (and a full-time Lecturer) of the postgraduate courses in Forensic Odontology at the University of Dundee. I supervise M.Sc., MFOdont and PhD researchers.
