Marie Morelato is an international student, from Switzerland, completing a PhD in forensic science. Claude Roux is the Director of the Centre for Forensic Science and one of Marie’s PhD supervisors.

I came back in 2009 because I really liked the lifestyle and I had the opportunity to do a research project at UTS with the Australian Federal Police (AFP).
