"Catching a Killer"
School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Maindy Road
Wednesday 11th December 2013
CITER Soc have organised an afternoon-long workshop to be held on Wednesday 11th December titled "Catching a Killer". The idea behind the workshop is to demonstrate to the predominantly postgraduate audience how the wealth of knowledge and expertise in various disciplines (Psychology, Engineering, Dentistry, Chemistry, Biosciences, Law and Journalism) can be used collectively to “catch a killer”. There will be a series of exciting and engaging talks on many aspects of Forensic Science including case studies from a Forensic Odontologist, inspirational real-life experiences in the field of crime scene investigation and Forensic Chemistry (DNA profiling and blood typing). During the afternoon there will also be mystery solving stations where the audience will have the chance to rotate around learning stations for approximately 40 minutes and interact with one another to solve mini cases (including blood typing, fingerprint analysis and bite marks as evidence). The event will start at 12.45pm (registration and lunch) and will finish at 5.30pm.
Confirmed speakers include:
Zoe Ayres (PhD student, Warwick University) – She will be presenting a talk on Forensic Science and DNA profiling.
Saaed Alghamdi (PhD student, Glasgow University) – He will be presenting a talk on his experience working as a police officer in a crime scene investigation unit in Saudi Arabia and how he is applying the knowledge he gained from this experience in his PhD project.
Professor David Whittaker (OBE, Emeritus Professor in Forensic Dentistry and Oral Biology) – Is the go-to man for police forces worldwide when bodies can only be recognised by their teeth and he will be giving case studies of his real life experiences of identification and investigation.
Professor Robert Snowden (School of Psychology, Cardiff University) – He will be presenting a talk on his research on the management of offenders after they have been caught and the science behind predicting who is likely to be violent again in the future.
Dr Mike Jones (School of Engineering, Cardiff University)
