A bit about Christine...

Christine Funk started at the Minnesota Public Defender’s Office in 1994.  She was assigned her first forensic science case in 1995.  Not being a scientist by training, she struggled to understand the forensic science evidence in that and subsequent cases. Eventually, she managed to translate the scientific language into something she could understand.  Since then, she has worked towards making scientific evidence understandable to other lawyers, judges and lay people.  Ms. Funk was General Counsel at the Department of Forensic Sciences in Washington, D.C.  She is now a consultant. Ms. Funk served as an advisory member of the Education, Ethics, and Terminology Interagency Working Group under the National Science and Technology Council Subcommittee on Forensic Science and a charter member of the MN Forensic Laboratory Advisory Board.  She also served on the Board of the Minnesota Innocence Project. She is currently serving on the Legal Resource Committee for the Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC), part of an initiative by NIST and the Department of Justice to strengthen forensic science in the United States.
