Madison Lindung

MS Student

Madison Lindung is a first-year master's student under Dr. Tatiana Trejos. As an undergraduate, she studied organic and inorganic gunshot residue (GSR) in Dr. Trejos' group. Now, her research has shifted to characterizing modern nail polish products as a form of trace evidence using analytical techniques such as Scanning Electron Microscopy Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometry (SEM-EDS), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), and microscopic techniques by Polarizing Light Microscopy (PLM).

Madison is a master's student hailing from Sparrows Point, MD. She received her Bachelor's of Science in Forensic Chemistry from WVU in the Spring of 2023 with minors in Statistics and Criminology. As a GTA, she has built experience both in forensic chemistry and statistics domains, teaching courses such as Forensic Chemical Analysis and Forensic Statistics Applications. In the Spring of 2024, she will aid in teaching Trace Evidence Analysis as well as returning to assist in Introduction to Microscopy for a second time.
