Listen in as CSAFE Director Dr. Alicia Carriquiry contributes to the NPR Podcast Stats+Stories episode “Making Forensic Science Scientific.” She discusses the intersection of statistics and science, and why it matters in criminal investigations.

From the Episode:

“There have been any number of individuals that have been convicted on account of faulty evidence. You cannot absorb perfect evidence at a crime scene. But the conversation is starting to change and CSAFE is trying to develop tools to improve the way forensic examiners work.”
