Griffith forensic science and criminology graduate
When Nicole Gardiner was 10 she used to sneak out of her room to watch criminal forensic TV show CSI. This sparked a passion for forensics that led her to study a Bachelor of Forensic Science and Bachelor of Criminology double degree Griffith. Working as a forensic biologist with the Northern Territory Police Fire and Emergency Service, Nicole says Griffith paved the way for her to be a prime candidate in the workforce. 'Griffith gave me the knowledge and the building blocks for my dream career,' she says.
