CP/EVC Galloway explains forensic sciences to high school students

In a talk at Scotts Valley High School Thursday night (October 4), Alison Galloway,  UC Santa Cruz campus provost and executive vice chancellor, described how scientists assist in homicide investigations.

Galloway, a renowned forensic anthropologist, told students how her work and the work of others can help investigators determine the identity of homicide victims and the manner in which they were killed.

Galloway's appearance was covered by the Santa Cruz Sentinel. The article can be found here.

About 100 students and their parents attended the talk, which was part of the high school's sixth International Baccalaureate Science night. Her speech was followed by informal student presentations of their own three-week look into forensic sciences.

Galloway is frequently called to aid in police investigations and later testify at criminal trials.
