Find a Forensic Science School
Many thanks for taking the time to check out my forensic science website. My name is David Webb and I have a first class honors degree in psychology and a Masters in Occupational psychology. For a number of years, I was a lecturer in psychology at the University of Huddersfield (UK).
In 2003 I moved to sunny Spain with my family, where I now work as an online tutor and research dissertation supervisor.
It was a result of my research activity that I ended up pursuing an interest in forensic science. Since 2000, I've been involved in collaborative research with teams of forensic odontologists (dentists) in the UK, US and Canada.
Forensic odontologists carry out body identification work from dental remains at accident and crime scenes, and at mass casualty sites. For instance in the aftermath of a plane crash and most notably in recent years at The World Trade Center post 9/11.
The research I conducted was primarily to examine the emotional and psychological impact of this kind of work. In a completely different research project, we also explored the forensic implications of biting behavior within the context on a criminal investigation; given that bitemarks are often found on the victims of violent and sexual crime.
If you would like to read some of the research I've been involved in which was published in the Journal of Forensic Sciences, you can do so by clicking on the following links.
You will need Adobe Reader (the latest version is recommended) installed on your computer in order to open and read the journal articles. You can get Adobe Reader here (a new window will open so you can download without leaving this page).
If you want to open the file in your browser window, you can just click on the links. However if you want to download the file to view later, then right click on the link and choose "Save Target As" or "Save File As." Then select where you want to save the file on your hard drive.
Once you have saved the file, locate where you saved it, and double click to open.
I strongly recommend that anybody interested in forensic science visit the American Academy of Forensic Sciences Website. From here you will be able to discover what forensic science is, what forensic scientists do, what you need to do to become a forensic scientist and where forensic scientists work.
