What is a Forensic Scientist?

A forensic scientist is a trained professional who applies scientific principles and methods to the investigation and analysis of evidence in legal and criminal cases. Forensic scientists play a critical role in collecting, analyzing, and interpreting physical evidence to provide insights and conclusions that can be used in courts of law. Their work helps law enforcement agencies, attorneys, and the justice system understand the circumstances of a crime, identify suspects, and ensure a fair and accurate legal process.
