Dr. Bettie Davis Recognized for 2016 SENCER Model Course Chemistry and Crime

Dr. Bettie Davis, assistant professor of chemistry at Saint Vincent College, received recognition for her 2016 SENCER Model Course Chemistry and Crime. Chemistry and Crime is a course for non-science majors at Saint Vincent that looks at the chemistry behind major crimes (such as arson, drugs, or murder) and the science underlying the analysis of evidence. The course helps students understand that television and movies do not always accurately portray forensic analysis in real life, and makes students look critically at how juries evaluate forensic evidence, which can be subjective or presented in problematic ways.
