A person's fingerprint is like a biological seal which, once impressed, can never be denied (Colin Beavan). Having arrived at A levels my developing interest in science, especially biology, became firmed up by the time decision time came...
What initially drew me to forensic science arose from childhood intrigue into the intricacies of life science. This interest flourished greatly because since my childhood as I have been surrounded by science books like anatomy, chemistry etc because my uncle is a doctor and my mother studied pharmacy and I have always shown an interest towards these things and this passion has grown a deeper appreciation for the many challenges of such an interdisciplinary career...
I have always been interested in Forensic Science & Biological Science and learning how different techniques and methods are used for solving crimes. In particular how the principles of bioinformatics are used in detection and identification of microbes; how it is used in Forensic Science for detecting biocrime attacks and how to identify and examine skeletal remains of victims after long period of time...

My interest developed when I was exposed to the subject of Forensic Science at school after watching a video on how evidence is collected from a burglary crime scene and how forensic analysis techniques can achieve a successful conviction...
