Dr Paola Magni

Senior Lecturer in Forensic Science at Murdoch University (Perth, Western Australia) and the Deputy Dean at Murdoch University Singapore

I am a forensic biologist and researcher who focuses on the application of natural sciences (entomology, taphonomy and aquatic biology) through to crime scene investigation. I am an experienced researcher, lecturer and instructor in forensic science.

I have been called as an expert forensic witness by Italian and Australian Courts for cases in homicide, suspicious death, animal cruelty/wildlife, food forensic and stored products security both for the public prosecutor and defence.

I am a confident communicator and am experienced in STEM engagement activities. In 2019, from 50 contestants, I won the FameLab Australia – the British Council’s prestigious science communication competition. This lead me to represent Australia in the National FameLab Finals at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK where I was placed fourth in the world.
