Jennett Chenevert Aijala

NIJ Graduate Research Fellow
Florida International University

Jennett Chenevert Aijala is working toward her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry with a concentration in forensic chemistry at Florida International University. She is the senior member of a research group working with human head hair as a matrix for forensic toxicology. Since the NIJ GRF has allowed me to travel to conferences, I have been able to make professional connections that I previously did not have, she says. This has resulted in a number of contacts for future employment or postdoctoral positions. This has encouraged me to become more serious about following a career in forensic toxicology, whereas before, I was considering a career outside of forensics upon completion of my degree.
