Hi! My name is Jessica Ritchie and I’m an Australian expat living in the United Kingdom. Follow my journey of finishing my PhD, working in academia, and travelling.

My academic background is law and criminology. I am completing my PhD at the T.C. Beirne School of Law, The University of Queensland. I am particularly interested in forensic science evidence and my PhD examines the transfer of DNA data across jurisdictional borders. I am currently a research associate with the School of Criminology at the University of Leicester.
