Forensic science is often thought of as a very exciting field of work, but often people don't realize that there is a lot of arduous and sometimes menial work involved. This week we were privileged to hear from Dr. Jay A. Siegel, who directs the forensic science program at IUPUI. His presentation was both informative and interesting.
The final seminar of the year with an amazing guest speaker. Professor Jay Siegel has a Ph.D in Analytical Chemistry from George Washington University. He worked for 3 years at Virginia Bureau of Forensic Sciences. Here he analyzed drugs and fire residues and he explored trace evidence. Following being at the Virginia Bureau he left and became a professor of chemistry and forensic science at Metropolitan State College for 3 years before he accepted a job at Michigan State University in the School of Criminal Justice from 1980 to 2004.
Our speaker of Chemistry Seminar presentation held on March 25, 2010 was Dr. Jay Siegel, who is a professor of forensic chemistry and director of the Forensic and Investigative Science program at IUPU. I was very excited to have a great time of the presentation by Dr. Siegel, one of the world famous forensic scientists.
The seminar talk this week was a very enjoyable one that gave great insight into a potential job field for the few actual chemistry majors that are mixed in among the majority of pre-med and pre-dent students.
The seminar that was held on March 25th, 2010 was presented by Jay A. Siegel. He is currently a Director of the Forensic and Investigative Sciences Program and Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at IUPUI. He came to Andrews to talk about “Research in the forensic and investigative science program at IUPUI.”
On March 25, 2010, there was a presentation about the forensic science. The presentation was given by Dr. Jay A. Siegel. Dr. Seigel is a chair of the department of chemistry at IUPUI. For about 30 years, he wrote books related to forensic science for beginners and have worked as a professor at various universities. His first impression was very forceful and strong to me. However, the presentation was full of wit and humor. During the seminar, Dr. Seigel occasionally told us several stories he has experienced, and they were very interesting to me.
On March 25th, our speaker for seminar was Dr. Jay Siegel. Dr. Siegel currently works for Indiana University Purdue where he is the chair of the Chemistry and Biological Chemistry department. His presentation was interesting in that he spoke about his years as an analytical forensic scientist, and the different cases that he worked as well as the various areas of research he is involved in.
This week’s speaker was Jay A. Siegel. He is received a PhD in Analytical Chemistry and is currently a director of the forensic and investigative sciences program. He is also the chair of the Chemistry and Chemical Biology department at IUPUI. During this presentation Siegel gave us information on the undergraduate and graduate research that is currently being done in the forensic and investigative science program. The areas of interest for this program are chemistry, science, and law.
Our speaker this past seminar, Jay Siegel, gave an informative and exciting presentation on the topic of forensic chemistry. He was able to share us several anecdotes from his long list of experiences helping law enforcement. I enjoyed his presentation especially because he was able to provide a fresh perspective on chemistry with the utilization of it in the forensic sciences.
