Upon graduating from Loyola University, I plan to pursue a career in Forensic Chemistry and work for the FBI.
A growing issue in this field is the lack of scientist in forensic labs. There are too many murders and not enough scientists to be able to match the killer with the killed. That’s where I come in. I want to help lighten the load. It breaks my heart when I hear that there are children just being discovered after being missing for 2 plus years. Just like DNA finger printing was miraculously invented, I want to create something that will make it easier to find missing people; something that goes beyond DNA finger printing.
I believe there is a method not yet discovered that can help further Identify a murder. Usually, the people who are caught are past murderers because there DNA is already in the Database. However, what about the hundreds of murderers who are not yet in the database? If I could create a method that could track down these murderers, so many more cases could be completed and more people can be put to rest much faster.
After obtaining my PhD in Forensic Chemistry, I have aspirations to start an intuition that focuses just on crime solving. That way, more people can be educated in Forensic Science and more scientists can be brought forth within the field.
