Cafe Scientifique Guildford shared an event.Amoret shares some insights into the weird and wonderful world of forensic entomology (1/2)
Could you briefly describe one of your experiments for us?
Two years after Milly Dowler’s body was found, I was asked to try and find insect evidence at the deposition site. This got me thinking about how long empty puparia can remain intact and therefore be of forensic use. So I buried 1000’s of empty puparia in my father’s garden in Hampshire, and over a period of six years, dug them up every few weeks. I found that they remained intact and identifiable up to about 3.5 years later.
Without too many spoilers what can we expect from the evening?
Bodies and bugs!
What is the last bit if dramatised science that made you roll your eyes or shout at the screen?
Earthworms, cockroaches and post-feeding larvae crawling around on bodies.
What are you working on *now*?
Publishing papers from my PhD, and analysing data from the last 20 years of cases we’ve carried out at the NHM.
Your worst job to date?
Decomposing human cadavers in wheelie bins
