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 ◍
