Crimes, Critters and Clues

Magni, P. (2019) Crimes, Critters and Clues. In: FameLab Global Final, June 2019, Cheltenham, UK.


Paola Magni (Murdoch University) has taken out FameLab Australia 2019, winning overall as well as taking home the audience choice prize.

Her funny, intriguing and fascinating talk revealed the incredible world of underwater forensics, and how shoes and barnacles can combine to crack mysteries.

A crime scene investigator’s job is to reconstruct the events of crime and identify the culprit. For Magni, a forensic biologist, insects, crustaceans, molluscs, microorganisms and plants are the first witnesses. Together they can solve murders long after the body has disappeared, and mysteries such as vanishing planes.
