Student working on a research project.

Forensic Stable Isotopes

Light stable isotopes are widely used in forensic sciences (in the broadest sense) to determine habitats, biochemical processes, diets, the hydrological cycle, and climate change. The goal of this research is to use naturally occurring light stable isotopes to investigate biological, chemical, environmental, and physical processes.
