Tim Scott (Australia)

Tim ScottTim holds a BSc (Hons) from Flinders University and has worked in the Toxicology section at Forensic Science South Australia since 2002, where his current position is Team Leader. He is an adjunct academic at Flinders University and is a member of The International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT), the Society of Hair Testing (SOHT), the Australian and New Zealand Forensic Science Society (ANZFSS), and is a board member of the Forensic and Clinical Toxicology Association (FACTA). He loves to talk about forensic toxicology any chance he gets – although his wife and four children do not seem particularly keen to listen, which is probably why he started a podcast. His interests include drug screening using HRMS and the interpretation of post-mortem drug concentrations.


Peter Stockham (Australia)

Peter StockhamAfter completing his BSc (Hons) in Organic Chemistry at the University of Adelaide, Peter started his scientific career in hospital research and water quality laboratories. He joined Forensic Science South Australia in 2000 and was heavily involved in the lab's early adoption of innovative LC-MS and LC-HRMS techniques. Besides his daily reporting, casework and quality responsibilities, his recent interests include analysis of hospital emergency department samples to monitor drug trends, development of NPS suspect-screening techniques, encouraging sharing of information between toxicology labs, and trying not to take life too seriously. He is a member of FACTA and ANZFSS, and is the Australian Regional Representative for TIAFT. A scientist at heart, Peter is always aware of the rare privilege it is to have a career in a field where science and service are cornerstones, and where innovation and collaboration is the norm, if not a necessity.
