Analytical, Environmental & Forensic Sciences

Our aim is to develop and improve forensic science methodologies and to explore and minimise the negative impact of the environment on human health.

We bring together more than 100 analytical, environmental, forensic and toxicological researchers with computer scientists, social scientists and engineers.

Based in laboratories at King’s Waterloo Campus, we develop technologies and techniques to identify biomarkers, find pollutants and monitor, measure and model their effects.

Our experts use this evidence to advise governments and inform policy. We have shaped drink driving legislation, policed drug use in international athletics and monitored air pollution in London for more than 25 years.
