Welcome to the October issue of our newsletter!

Welcome to the third issue of our quarterly INTREPID Forensics newsletter. Our researchers have now been here a full year and the majority of them have passed their upgrade to full PhD students, with the rest close behind. In this issue we have a guest article from Andy Bécue, Assistant professor at the ESC, who co-organises the Lausanne Summer School, that five of our researchers attended this summer. We also have a researcher profile of Annelies Voorhaar and other articles from our INTREPID researchers.
