Supervisors. Prof Michael Barrett. Prof Iain McInnes. Dr Mick Watson. Dr Simon Rogers. PhD project summary. Modern biology has implemented technologies which enable the generation of massive datasets, dissecting the molecular composition of living things.
The estimation of the time since death (or post-mortem interval, PMI) is one of the most debated topics in forensic anthropology and, despite the great number of studies conducted on this subject, it still suffers from poor precision and reliability, in particular in cases of advanced decay and/or dry remains.
Secondary Supervisor. Dr Charlie Lees FRCP(Ed) PhD, Consultant Gastroenterologist. This project would suit a motivated student with statistics, data science, machine learning, bioinformatics or related backgrounds.
