WKCTC Science Seminar To Discuss Human Time of Death

wkctcs 02 300PADUCAH, Ky. (9/17/13) – Television shows like CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) and NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) solve crimes with forensic evidence, and estimating the victim’s time of death is sometimes one of the crime solving tools. Learn how this is done at a science seminar at West Kentucky Community and Technical College on September 25.

Dr. Jim Smart will be presenting “Estimating Time of Death in Humans” on Wednesday, September 25 at 11:00 a.m. in Waller Hall 112. The hour-long presentation is free and open to the public.

Dr. Smart, associate professor of chemical engineering at the University of Kentucky College of Engineering teaches on the Paducah campus, but in his spare time he delves into the world of forensic science.

He will be sharing his recent research interests in forensic science, applying heat transfer models to postmortem applications. He earned his doctorate degree in chemical engineering from the University of Texas and has been interested in researching forensic science theories since 2010. He has authored numerous articles on this topic, in addition to those covering his main field of research in environmental remediation.

 “This seminar is for anyone interested in real-life (or death) applications of scientific theory,” said Dr. Karen Hlinka, WKCTC dean of the science and mathematics division and co-sponsor of the Science Seminar Series.

The WKCTC Science Seminar Series, established in 1985, is sponsored by science faculty members and was initiated to provide a forum for science-related topics not usually covered in the WKCTC curriculum. The series is open to WKCTC students, faculty and staff and community members.
