Linked Forensic Consultants has decades of experience in the management and delivery of large research projects. We recognise the weaknesses in the forensic science research effort where the focus is mostly on law enforcement, crime detection and crime reduction and less on matters relevant to the tribunal such as creating data collections to better test the contentions offered at trial.
As a Consultancy we work with partners to help identify new research themes, locate sources of funding, develop proposals and deliver outputs. Furthermore, we can provide project and technical management for each stage of the research cycle.
Our own research aims are improving the quality of forensic evidence and promoting the forensic application of isotope analysis.
We also provide supervision of energetic materials research at the University of Otago.
