Dr Noemi Procopio is a Senior Research Fellow in Forensic Sciences at Northumbria University (Newcastle). She obtained her MSc in Molecular Biotechnology from the University of Turin (Italy, 2014) and a PhD in Forensic Proteomics from the University of Manchester in 2018. Straight after the PhD she was appointed as Lecturer at Northumbria University, and she was then awarded with the prestigious UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship with a project titled “Forens-OMICS”: a cross disciplinary implementation of omics sciences to in vivo and post-mortem ageing investigations for forensic applications”. The final goals will be the identification of new biomarkers in human bones capable of revealing information on the chronological age and the post-mortem interval (PMI) of the individuals, for forensic purposes. This will be achieved through a multidisciplinary approach where “omics” methodologies and machine-learning tools will be integrated in order to develop predictive models for PMI and age-at-death estimations.
