Course Information

Forensic Science is any science used for the purposes of the law, and therefore provides impartial scientific evidence for use in the courts of law, e.g. in a criminal investigation and trial.

In this course we will learn different tools and techniques used to investigate different aspects of forensic work such as: crime scene investigation, fingerprinting and impression evidence, physical evidence, trace evidence, forensic pathology, DNA, toxicology, forensic anthropology, and arson investigation, as well as other forensic disciplines.

A little bit about the instructor:

I am a native to Colorado, raised in Westminster and I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder for my undergraduate degree and the University of Colorado at Denver for my first Masters degree program in Linguistically Diverse Education. Currently I am pursuing a Masters degree in Biology through a program at the Denver Zoo and Miami University Ohio!

I love spending time with family and friends.

I have a cute little border-collie lab mix and we take long hikes together.

I participate in a lot of different activities such as: coordinating Denver Comic Con content, roller derby, and service volunteer opportunities. I enjoy watching movies and reading.
