All three of these women work as forensic scientists at FTCoE. Both Katherine Moore and Nicole Bynum specialize in research in forensic toxicology, and Sarah Norsworthy specializes in DNA analysis. Each of the women describes her educational and work background that brought her to FTCoE. Their undergraduate and graduate degrees are related either directly to forensic science or indirectly to a science with relevance to criminal investigations, namely genetics (DNA) and chemistry. Each of the women describes various research projects in which she has been involved at FTCoE.
