Hi! My name is Kevin. I have been in the forensic toxicology business for over 14 years.
I'm currently employed as a Forensic Toxicologist by Axis Forensic Toxicology in Indianapolis, Indiana. I have extensive
experience in research and analytical method development, laboratory supervision and
management, toxicology case review, toxicology results interpretation, and toxicology and chemistry education. Areas of expertise include liquid chromatography mass
spectrometry (LC/MS), the analytical detection and toxicology of new
psychoactive substances (NPS) such as substituted cathinones, synthetic
cannabinoids, NBOME hallucinogens, fentanyl analogs, and opioid research
chemicals, as well as independent toxicology case review. In my current position, I oversee method development and validation of analytical
methods for NPS and other esoteric substances. I have provided fact and
expert witness testimony in drug chemistry, human performance toxicology, and
postmortem toxicology matters in numerous states across the USA, including California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in
Biology from Franklin College in Franklin, Indiana and a Master of Science in
Forensic Toxicology from the University of Florida. I am certified as a
Diplomate of the American Board of Forensic Toxicology in forensic toxicology
(D-ABFT-FT) and I hold regular membership with the Society of Forensic
Toxicologists (SOFT), where I am a member of SOFT’s Young Forensic Toxicologist
committee and SOFT’s Designer Drugs committee. I am also an associate member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) in the Toxicology section. I have published papers on
new psychoactive substances in journals such as the Journal of Analytical
Toxicology (JAT) and Forensic Science International (FSI) and presented
research at national meetings such as the SOFT annual conference.
