Jonathan Morris
ENFHEX Deputy Chairman

Jonathan Morris graduated from Kings College London with a BSc in Pharmacology and an MSc in Forensic Science. He trained as a Forensic Document Examiner at the Metropolitan Police Forensic Science Laboratory, London, where he worked from 1990 to 1996. He moved to the Strathclyde Police Forensic Science Laboratory in Glasgow where he was head of the Documents and Handwriting Team. In 2010 when forensic science provision in Scotland moved to the Scottish Police Authority he was trained in both footwear examination and fire investigation, examinations which he now routinely undertakes alongside the document examination casework.

With over 33 years-experience Jonathan has been involved in various projects ranging from the training of new staff, the introduction of Quality Systems within the organisations within which he has worked and various research and development topics (including recently tutoring three MSc students in Digitally Captured Signatures and Handwriting).

He was part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology sponsored Human Factors in Forensic Handwriting (HFHE) Project. He is actively involved in developing training programmes within Europe and wider afield with the Organisation of Scientific Area Committees in the USA. He continues to challenge some of the established doctrine in the discipline and is especially interested in best practice, the process of both evaluating and reporting forensic results and training.

Jonathan was the first Chairman of the European Documents Expert Working Group (from 1998 to 2001), was on the Steering Committee of the European Network of Forensic Handwriting Experts (ENFHEX) from 1998 to 2002, Chairman of ENFHEX from 2013 to 2019 and is the current deputy Chair of ENFHEX. He project managed the first version of the ENFHEX Best Practice Manual, and has been involved in each of the subsequent editions.
