SWhat has mo­ti­vated Poulomi Bhadra to work hard on this pro­ject is the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween King’s and the Lon­don Metropoli­tan Po­lice Ser­vice (MPS). The fact that her work had a di­rect ap­pli­ca­tion in cur­rent po­lice work made a big dif­fer­ence as “even while on the first rungs of an aca­demic ca­reer, we get to con­trib­ute sig­nif­i­cantly to the world,” she says. Dr Bar­bara Daniel, head of the depart­ment of foren­sic and an­a­lyt­i­cal science at King’s, says King’s re­searchers work with the MPS, shar­ing ex­per­tise and re­sources, to en­able King’s stu­dents to carry out fo­cused re­search projects based on real crime scene in­ves­ti­ga­tion. The aim of th­ese projects is to tackle the chal­lenges in un­cov­er­ing, col­lect­ing and analysing foren­sic ev­i­dence. “As a lead­ing re­search in­sti­tu­tion we are now build­ing on this ex­pe­ri­ence and draw­ing from other ex­per­tise across the col­lege to work with the MPS on ex­pand­ing our work in dig­i­tal foren­sics and cy­ber­crime,” says Dr Daniel
