Wilco Duvivier, Ph.D., Wageningen University
Wilco Duvivier received his MSc degree in Analytical Sciences from University of Amsterdam in 2011. After working in the analytical R&D department of DSM Food Specialties in Delft as a senior analyst for 1.5 years, he started his PhD at Wageningen University in April 2012 under supervision of Prof. Dr. Michel Nielen and Dr. Teris van Beek. His PhD research focused on both evidence-based evaluation of current hair analysis techniques and the development of new hair analysis methods using new, state-of-the-art, ambient ionization techniques. This research, aimed to strengthen the use of forensic hair evidence for court cases, has been documented in several peer-reviewed publications so far and led to a completed PhD thesis which he will defend in July 2016.
