UNT Forensic Program Faculty Highlights

Dr. Guido Verbeck

Dr. Verbeck is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and teaches forensic chemistry for our program. In addition, he teaches a graduate level analytical chemistry course. Dr. Verbeck received his PhD from Texas A&M University in 2004. While at UNT, Dr. Verbeck won the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) Young Investigator Award for the "Development of Novel Preparative Mass Spectrometry Instrumentation for the Advancement of New Materials and Nanofabrication."

As well as teaching, Dr. Verbeck has published several papers and patents and has given many presentations. Some interesting forensic publications:
