Raychelle Burks

After a few years working in a crime lab, Dr. Raychelle Burks returned to academia, teaching, and forensic science research. An analytical chemist, Dr. Burks enjoys the challenge developing detection methods for a wide variety of controlled and regulated substances. Beyond the bench, Dr. Burks writes a monthly true crime column called Trace Analysis for Chemistry World, the magazine of the Royal Society of Chemistry. In addition to true crime, Dr. Burks delves into fictional crimes by evaluating how some of our favorite (at least favorite… King Joffrey) characters might have met their end.
