Amanda Fujikawa’s graduate research may change the way insects are considered in determining post-mortem intervals.  Her work has shown that insect behavior and morphology may be more complicated than previously believed.

Her findings may significantly impact the field of Forensic Science, and if some of these variables can be further studied and confirmed, post-mortem interval may be determined with more accuracy.
