DNA exoneration shows that mistaken identification is one of the primary causes of convictions of the innocent. The U.S. Supreme Court has not revised or amended its ruling on suggestive eyewitness identification procedures (Neil v.Biggers, 1977) for over 30 years. Scientific inquires into eyewitness identification, however, have continued to develop, revealing more insight into the unreliable nature of eyewitness identification. The efficacy of Biggers as a safeguard against unreliable identification will be discussed. It will be argued that safeguards intended by the Court may be mislead jurors into believing eyewitness are reliable.

The Alumni Association is pleased to host quarterly lunch & learn events where alumni can gather to network and exchange business cards while also having the opportunity to hear from one of UAHuntsville's accomplished faculty members on recent research studies and findings.

Today's Chargers:  A Student Perspective Henrique Casagrande


Name:  Henrique Casagrande

Major:  Aerospace Engineering

2010 Dr. and Mrs. Clark W. Hawk Scholarship recipient


Why did you decide to attend UAHuntsville?

I eventually settled on UAHuntsville because of its aerospace engineering program.  I've always been fascinated by planes.


 What is your most memorable UAHuntsville experience thus far?

The International Aerospace Conference was the most amazing campus-sponsored experience ever.  It's basically a Star Trek  conference for AE majors: education, exposure to cutting-edge space technology, and appearances by people such as the human who has spent the most hours in space!


What do you enjoy doing when you're not studying?

I like to run if it's warm outside.  I also enjoy hiking, rappelling, and rock climbing.  I'm kind of an adrenaline junkie.


What do you plan to do with your degree and experience?  What will you take away from UAHuntsville?

I plan to get my Master's and Ph.D.  I am looking into the European Institute of Aeronautics in France.  I have dual citizenship in Brazil and Switzerland, so I will serve my mandatory draft as a member of the Swiss Air Force and later work for RUAG (the Swiss equivalent of Boeing).
