Dr Rosie Everett


Department: Applied Sciences

Dr Rosie Everett is a lecturer in Forensic Science with a specialism in environmental forensics. Before joining Northumbria, she worked for a major forensic service provider as a Forensic Ecologist specialising in the application of her environmental trace evidence (soils, diatoms, pollen) to support investigations into major crime for UK police forces. Her specific training is in the analysis of diatoms as a trace evidence type to understand potential cases for drowning. She continues to develop and improve on reporting for forensic casework in her research capacity at Northumbria, as well as continuing to support UK police forces as a consultant for forensic ecology casework.


With a background in Environmental Archaeology, Dr Rosie Everett is also a specialist in peatland archaeology and palaoenvironments and continues to work with the UNEP Global Peatlands Initiative to support the protection of the  historic environment during programmes of peatland restoration.
