I have 12 years’ experience working within forensic science. I started my career as a DNA analyst at LGC Forensics. I then moved to Surrey Police where I worked within their fingerprint enhancement and DNA labs and frequently attended crime scenes. My last employer was British Transport Police where I worked within their Laboratory Services as a Forensic Laboratory Officer and then Acting Laboratory Supervisor.
