10/29/2019  Congratulations to Melanie Beasley for her invitation to serve as an isotope expert at a forensic workshop hosted by the International committee of the Red Cross in South Africa and the University of Cape Town. The workshop is a collaborative humanitarian effort to help determine how stable isotope methods can be implemented across Africa to determine the country of origin in order to restore family links in cases involving unaccompanied or separated minors, but also to engage with families to obtain important personal information needed by authorities to forensically identify deceased individuals. Melanie is one of six isotope experts invited to the workshop and was the only junior faculty member invited.
