Forensic Mathematics

... is the best short description that I have found to describe the work that I do, which mostly pertains to DNA identification, and includes consulting, writing softwareDNA•VIEW is DNA identification software used by some 100 laboratories, in every continent (except Antarctica) – academic activities in mathematics, biostatistics, and various aspects of population genetics.
