A Pioneer in Forensic Science Reform: The Work of Paul Giannelli

Type: Research Area(s):

Published: 2018 | By: Brandon Garrett

Few can say, "I told you so," to our entire criminal justice system. Being right about what is wrong with the use of evidence in criminal cases is not a bad thing, but being able to influence the growing response…

Probabilistic Reporting in Criminal Cases in the United States: A Baseline Study

Type: Research Area(s):

Published: 2020 | By: Simon Cole

Forensic evidence reporting shows a high degree of adherence to prevailing disciplinary standards.  Probabilistic reporting of forensic results remains rare.  Probabilistic reports were mostly subjective verbal assignments of posterior probabilities.

Statistical methods for digital image forensics: Algorithm mismatch for blind spatial steganalysis and score-based likelihood ratios for camera device identification

Type: Research Area(s):

Published: 2020 | By: Stephanie Reinders

Forensic science currently faces a variety of challenges. Statistically suitable reference databases need to be developed and maintained. Subjective methods that can introduce bias need to be replaced by objective methods. Highly technical forensic methods need to be clearly and…

Statistical Methods for the Forensic Analysis of User-Event Data

Type: Research Area(s):

Published: 2020 | By: Chris Galbraith

A common question in forensic analysis is whether two observed data sets originate from the same source or from different sources. Statistical approaches to addressing this question have been widely adopted within the forensics community, particularly for DNA evidence, providing…

Hunting wild stego images, a domain adaptation problem in digital image forensics

Type: Research Area(s):

Published: 2020 | By: Li Lin

Digital image forensics is a field encompassing camera identication, forgery detection and steganalysis. Statistical modeling and machine learning have been successfully applied in the academic community of this maturing field. Still, large gaps exist between academic results and applications used…

How Can a Forensic Result Be a ‘Decision’? A Critical Analysis of Ongoing Reforms of Forensic Reporting Formats for Federal Examiners

Type: Research Area(s):

Published: 2020 | By: Simon A. Cole

The decade since the publication of the 2009 National Research Council report on forensic science has seen the increasing use of a new word to describe forensic results. What were once called “facts,” “determinations,” “conclusions,” or “opinions,” are increasingly described…

Psychometric Analysis of Forensic Examiner Behavior

Type: Research Area(s): ,

Published: 2019 | By: Amanda Luby

Forensic science often involves the comparison of crime-scene evidence to a known-source sample to determine if the evidence and the reference sample came from the same source. Even as forensic analysis tools become increasingly objective and automated, final source identifications…

Quantifying the similarity of 2D images using edge pixels: An application to the forensic comparison of footwear impressions

Type: Research Area(s):

Published: 2020 | By: Soyoung Park

We propose a novel method to quantify the similarity between an impression (Q) from an unknown source and a test impression (K) from a known source. Using the property of geometrical congruence in the impressions, the degree of correspondence is…
