About Forensic Nexus

A message from the Founder: Tatiana T. Scott, M.S.F.S.


Thanks for visiting! As a scientist, it is in my nature to investigate. The investigative aspects of forensic science are what lead to my strong interest in the field of forensics in the first place. While I had an interest in the field before I went to graduate school, there were many questions I had that still went unanswered once I was accepted into the program:

What does it mean to be a forensic scientist? What jobs would be available to me with a forensic science degree? What are the different types of academic programs? What organizations promote forensic research and education?

It was only after my first year in the program that I realized how much knowledge I had gained about the field and how little information was available to the average person in terms of how to get into the field. Anyone who has spent even a small amount of time doing a Google search on forensic science will tell you that there isn’t much to see. It took me two intensive years of research and ultimately investigating to gain a solid understanding of where I was in my career, and what steps I needed to take next. My time at Arcadia University inspired me to share the knowledge I’ve gained with others who may be interested in the field. From that inspiration Forensic Nexus was born to serve as a reference hub, information portal,  forensic library and network for the forensic community. I hope this site helps guide you through your journey into forensic science. Thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Tatiana Scott currently works for the NYPD, and graduated from Arcadia University, where she received an M. S. in Forensic Science. It was there that she gained her expertise in Forensic Toxicology, Forensic Biology, Trace Evidence Analysis and Forensic Chemistry.
