CSAFE researchers recently attended the Association of Firearms and Toolmark Examiners Annual Training Seminar. Our team worked to build practitioner and NIST relationships by presenting CSAFE advancements in forensic science research and engaging in critical discussion about how our results can improve the everyday work of firearms and toolmark examiners. Dr. Heike Hofmann presented at a technical session on the CSAFE automated bullet matching algorithm, including new results from several validation studies. CSAFE graduate students participated in a poster session, and had the opportunity to initiate improtant discussions with practitioners interested in using probabilities in courtroom testimony. CSAFE sponsored a booth, which allowed our team to meet additional researchers and practitioners and discuss future collaborations.
