Research interests include: 1) human identification; 2) identification of botanical and entomological material, 3) microbial forensics; 4) immuno-magnetic cell capture; 5) intra/inter species diversity plants
Specific Research: 1) DNA typing from low copy number samples (LCN); 2) identification of Acer rubrum (red maple) using Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP); 3) species differentiation of blowflies and flesh flies using AFLP; 4) development of an immuno-magnetic procedure for the capture of human spermatozoa from sexual assault swabs; 4) pathogen detection using a unique liquid array technology; 5) high-resolution melting analysis (HRM) for tracking genetic diversity in plant populations.
