This website is dedicated to all things exciting and happening in the Forensic Chemistry & Materials Lab!

 

A few notes about us:

● We are located at Ontario Tech University in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada ●

◍ We primarily research topics in forensic science and materials chemistry ◍

● Our aim is to characterize the physico-chemical properties of physical evidence left at crime scenes, and how they persist in the environment ●

◍ We also make  ​biohazard-free and realistic blood substitutes with targeted applications in the forensic sciences ◍
