Summary of Research Interests
Gillian's main research areas focus is the development of analytical techniques towards forensic and archaeological applications.
Archaeology - main research interests include: decomposition in anaerobic environments, pathophysiology of bone, stable isotope analysis of bone collagen and organic/inorganic analysis of bone. Gillian has developed methods in investigation amino acids in bone, especially towards stable isotope methodology.
Illicit drug analysis - main research interests currently include the development of methods for the detection of novel psychoactive compounds, detection of drugs in wastewater and novel techniques for drug detection.
