Dr Bond worked for Northamptonshire Police for nearly 20 years as Head of Forensic Services and, during that time, crime scene managed many high profile investigations. In 2011 he joined the Department of Chemistry at Leicester University and more recently moved to the Department of Criminology.

Dr Bond has invented novel methods of recovering fingerprints from 'difficult' surfaces and several of these are used by law enforcement agencies worldwide including the USA. He has won many awards including from Time Magazine and the BBC Focus Magazine and, in 2011, he was awarded the OBE for services to forensic science. He has published widely and has international collaborations with organisations in the USA.

This lecture is sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
