Bio

Dr. Prinz spent most of her career as a forensic DNA specialist and crime laboratory manager where she played an active role in providing DNA testing results for criminal casework, missing persons, and disaster victim identification.  

Research

Research interests include the intersection of crime scene processing and non-biological criminalistics disciplines with forensic DNA typing. I am also interested in the optimization of markers and detection methods and proper statistical weight assignment to DNA typing results
