 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Ian is the Director of the Centre for Forensic Science (CFS) at the University of Western Australia (UWA) and a Registered Forensic Practitioner. He is the State's Honorary Forensic Entomologist and as an expert witness in the science of entomology has appeared in courts in Western Australia, Northern territory, Queensland and New South Wales. Ian has organised a number of forensic entomology workshops for law enforcement agencies in Australia (Queensland, Northern Territory and Tasmania) and the USA which include the investigation of decomposition of bodies buried and on the surface. Ian has now developed a collaborative program between CFS and the University of Tennessee Anthropological Centre (body Farm). This research conducted will eventuate into an atlas for decomposition. Over the last 12 years Ian has been invited to teach the FBI Evidence Response Teams at the Human Remains Recovery School at the University of Tennessee Anthropological Centre. Ian recently became an Adjunct Professor with The Boston Medical School at Boston University.

Ian established the Centre for Forensic Science (CFS) is a postgraduate school offering Graduate Diplomas, Masters and combined Masters/PhD programs in 22 disciplines. The Centre now has 6 Academic staff, 16 Research staff and 20 Adjunct positions. As well some 122 students (42 internationals and 38 police) are enrolled in the various courses.
