Professorial congratulations to the new Professor Simona Francese
Wednesday 07 February 2018
We are delighted to announce that Simona Francese has been awarded the title of Professor of Forensic and Bioanalytical Mass Spectrometry by the University Professoriate Committee.
An internationally-known researcher in the area of Bioanalytical and Forensic Mass Spectrometry, Simona's ground-breaking fingerprint profiling method has been on trial with West Yorkshire Police which saw it successfully implemented during an investigation into a case of harassment. The Home Office has invested funding in the project and researchers hope to see the technology be used in high-profile cases.
This award recognises the outstanding contribution Simona has made to research at Hallam and beyond.
Congratulations Simona on this very well deserved recognition.
