Céline Weyermann graduated from the University of Lausanne (UNIL) in Switzerland with a MSc in Forensic Science in 2000, after one exchange year at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. In 2005, she achieved her PhD project on ink dating at the Institute of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry of the University of Giessen in Germany under the supervision of Prof. Spengler and in collaboration with the Bundeskriminalamt (Wiesbaden). Between 2004 and 2005, she worked on a European project of the 6th framework program on the profiling of amphetamine type stimulants under the supervision of Prof. Pierre Esseiva and Prof. Pierre Margot. She was then hired as an assistant lecturer at the School of Criminal Science of UNIL and started several pilot projects on forensic dating issues which resulted in a Swiss National Science Foundation Professorship obtained in 2010. This project, carried out at UNIL, allowed her to fund three PhD researches on fingermark, gunshot residue and ink dating. In 2015, she was appointed as an associate professor in forensic science and extended her research topics to environmental issues in collaboration with Dr. Nicolas Estoppey. In 2020, she worked for 6 months as a visiting professor at the Center of Forensic Science of the University of Technology Sydney with Prof. Claude Roux and his team.
