Trailblazer in forensic science
2015 is a milestone year for Professor Claude Roux. As Australia’s first forensic science degree – which Roux initiated – marks its 20th year, UTS celebrated the international significance of his research awarding him the 2015 Deputy Vice-Chancellor’s (Research) Medal for Research Impact.
Roux is the founding director of the Centre for Forensic Science at UTS and has been integral to the development of forensic science in Australia over the past 20 years.
“He has impacted the whole discipline and its practice worldwide,” says Director of the world-leading School of Criminal Sciences at the University of Lausanne, Professor Olivier Ribaux.
“Claude has played a decisive role at many levels in developing innovative methods and techniques used worldwide within forensic laboratories; impacting the debate around the current re-articulation of science within the justice system and the court; [and] taking leadership in the area of forensic intelligence which is now considered as revolutionising the discipline.”
