Kirstie’s prize for best presentation

The uses of diatoms in crime science

Kirstie Scott, a PhD student at UCL co-supervised by Dr Viv Jones and Dr Nigel Cameron (Geography) and Dr Ruth Morgan (Crime Science) won the John Carter Prize for the best student presentation at the annual British Diatomists Meeting, held near Hay-on-Wye on 24-26 October.

She reported her work on Diatoms and Forensic Applications, based on her PhD upgrade paper.

Several other members of the UCL Environmental Change Research Centre attended the meeting, as well as Sin Leng Chong, a visitor to UCL from Malaysia, investigating the uses of diatoms as forensic indicators of drowning.
