Forensic DNA analysis and body fluid identification. My research focuses on the development of techniques for the analysis of challenging forensic samples. Current projects include an optimization of strategies for the collection and analysis of low template and damaged DNA, a comprehensive analysis of the biological components of touch DNA and the evaluation of their possible applications in forensic profiling, rapidly mutating and stable Y-chromosome markers and applications of body fluid identification.
