Jennifer Elliot

Forensic Science Applications Group
Senior Manager
Jennifer Elliott is a forensic scientist serving the forensic DNA community since 2004. She earned her Bachelors of Science in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Connecticut in 2003 and began her career at the Massachusetts State Police Crime Laboratory. Through her years at the crime laboratory as a DNA analyst and supervisor, she worked on hundreds of DNA cases, processed crime scenes, and provided expert witness testimony. In 2010, she deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in support of the United States Armed Forces, functioning as a DNA analyst and DNA Site Lead. Throughout her time abroad, she expeditiously processed hundreds of forensic cases and provided the military with information never before introduced to the battlefield. Following her eighteen month deployment, Jennifer gained employment consulting with forensic DNA laboratories in countries throughout the Middle East in an effort to improve laboratory efficiency and
quality. In 2012 she joined Thermo Fisher Scientific as the Global Trainer for the Human Identification Professional Services team and provided training globally for laboratories after new forensic DNA technologies were validated. Recently, Jennifer accepted the role of Sr. Manager for the Forensic Science Applications Group, and, with her team, provides technical support and guidance to laboratories across the United States and internationally.

Jennifer’s motivation for becoming a forensic scientist originated from family influences, combining her mother’s love of nursing and her father’s passion for law enforcement. When her career commenced, she could have never anticipated the opportunities and journey that was ahead of her.
