Maiken’s main research areas are human decomposition chemistry with special focus on markers in tissue and odour samples for time since death analysis. Her interest lies in the interface between forensic science and analytical chemistry.

She works on developing methods for the successful location and recovery of victim remains and associated evidence in mass disaster scenarios. Maiken also uses her knowledge in odour analysis in the investigation of wildlife crime and conservation.
