Potential PhD students: I am willing to supervise or co-supervise well qualified and prepared PhD students who wish to conduct research in forensic inference and statistics applied to forensic speech science or to other branches of forensic science. I am willing to supervise full-time on-campus PhD students and part-time distance PhD students. The latter option may be particularly attractive to students who work in industry and have relevant work experience and resources. Such students could be based almost anywhere in the world.
Note that PhD programmes at Aston (and the UK in general) are focused on conducting research and have few formal coursework requirements.
If you are seriously considering applying to work with me, please contact me for more information.
Past PhD student: Dr Ewald Enzinger
