Jess’ PhD examines how the Victorian justice system responds to technology-facilitated domestic violence through family violence intervention orders. Having completed her Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and Bachelor of Arts (Hons), Jess is a socio-legal researcher, with research interests relating to gendered violence and its regulation, technology-facilitated abuse, access to justice, systems’ abuse, and victim/survivors’ help-seeking.
