Dr Robert McHardy


I am teaching on the Kingston University Forensic Science course having gained nine years first hand experience working as a forensic scientist at the Home Office Forensic Science Service. During this time I worked on hundreds of cases, being involved in the whole process from sampling, analyzing, interpretationand statement writing through to giving evidence in court on many occasions.

Prior to my work as a forensic scientist I specialised in scanning tunneling microscopy.
