Kelley Peters is a doctoral student in chemistry at FIU, where she is developing new methods for on-site detection of explosives utilizing simple, rapid and inexpensive technology. Her research focuses on designing presumptive and confirmatory methods for the rapid analysis of multiple explosive compounds. The end goal is to prevent terrorist attacks by revolutionizing on-site forensic detection of explosives. She seeks to show the simplicity of these new devices that can be easily taken into the field and provide faster analysis. Peters has presented her research on the analysis and detection of multiple explosives at conferences nationally and abroad.
