My name is Dr Scott Chadwick and I’m a lecturer here at UTS and I lecture in first year chemistry and forensic science.

I studied the Bachelor of Forensic Science way back in 2006 and from there I did my honours degree and then I continued on to my PhD here at UTS. During that time I was able to get involved in some teaching of some undergraduate subjects and from there I really enjoyed the teaching side of things as well as the research.

The most rewarding part of my job is really being able to interact with the students and see them grow as learners in the field of forensic science. So the best advice that I could give the students is to be open to all the different opportunities available here at UTS

So while you may start off wanting to go into a particular area or career, really opening up to new adventures and new experiences is what UTS offers their students

I’ve been here for 11 years, both as a student and a staff member. UTS is really a part of who I am, it’s a part of my DNA.
