Forensic Identification: Maria Maclennan

Through collaboration with the University’s Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID), Maria worked alongside noted professionals to design a Forensic Jewellery Classification System for International Police use. The research aims to assist in the faster identification of victims of international mass-disasters through identifying the jewellery they were wearing. The system helps ‘match’ ante-mortem and post-mortem descriptions of jewellery to help confirm identity.

Maria also wrote and designed ‘Forensic Jewellery Identification: An Introduction to UK Law Enforcement and Disaster Victim Identification’; a short introductory reference guide to assist Police and Law Enforcement Officals understand and utilise jewellery as a form of forensic identification.
