Expert CV Thomas A. Kubic (condensed)

Retired from a major municipal crime laboratory after twenty-three (23) years of service. During that time he held the position of Detective - Criminalist with the specialty of trace (Microscopical) evidence analyst.

This specialty dealt with the collection, examination, analysis, and interpretation of data obtained from macro and micro evidence. Part of this interpretation involved the reconstruction of events at crime scenes and included the determination of actions at these scenes and their temporal relationships.

Some of these analyses have included, at times, the reconstruction of projectile flight paths (ballistics) and muzzle to target distance estimate determinations. These later analyses have been performed primarily by chemical tests for the presence, quantity and pattern of firearms residues by the transfer process. On occasion reconstruction of firearm discharge events has been performed by much more sophisticated techniques such as Scanning Electron Microscopy.

He is a Fellow of the American Board of Criminalistics the national certification board for criminalists. Part of the general knowledge exam, which must be passed on route to certification deals with firearm issues and crime scene reconstruction.
