Example Project: Have we got the scale right in fighting crime?
Project outline
 

Crime investigation relies on good science to make good decisions.  The underpinning benchmarks of good science is good measurement with known outcomes.  We have a series of projects looking at building a strong science base under some of the methods of identification of victims of crime and disasters.  Our team includes about 30 graduate students and more than 150 collaborators across the globe (ircohe.net).  We collaborate with Forensic Science teams in Tasmania, Queensland and well as locally.  The core values of the research team are about making a just and equitable society!  All students are fully supported during their studies and we have a near 100% record of peer review publication from students’ efforts (with the student being the lead author).  Research with this team will make a difference to the world.


Project is suitable for
Honours, Masters, (extension of it will lead to Doctorate level).
