    PhD Candidate

    2016   Bachelor of Forensic Science (Forensic Molecular Biology) (Honours I), Griffith University

    Jasmine is a final year PhD Candidate at the Genomics Research Centre, her PhD project is titled: Multi-generational Whole Mitochondrial DNA Analysis for the Identification of Historical Military Remains.

    In 2016, she graduated with a Bachelor of Forensic Science (Forensic Molecular Biology) from Griffith University, receiving Class I Honours for her work examining tissue preservation in extreme temperatures for rapid response to military deaths. Her current research focuses on multigenerational mitochondrial genome analysis through Next Generation Sequencing for the identification of historical military remains. Specifically, her work looks at intergenerational mutation rate estimates, and the development of mitochondrial genome interpretation guidelines for forensic casework.
