Personal profile


I received my BSc in Forensic and Applied Biology from the University of Worcester in 2013. Subsequently I gained MSc degree in Anatomy and Advanced Forensic Anthropology at the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (University of Dundee) in 2014. As my masters project I conducted a pilot study into human identification based on epidermal and dermal fingerprints collected from Thiel-embalmed bodies. Since 2014, I am a PhD student (turned part-time in 2017) at the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, researching the microdegradation of cortical bone tissue by hydrochloric acid.

I am currently a full-time PhD student at the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science studying the relationship between epidermal and dermal fingerprints collected from Thiel-embalmed bodies.
