About

I am a lecturer in Criminal Psychology and the programme leader for the BSc (Hons) in Criminal Psychology here at the University of Derby. I started as a lecturer in the Autumn of 2014, and have helped develop the criminal psychology provision we offer since then.

My main research interest is psychopathy within a developmental and life-course perspective, and I have presented my research and numerous international conferences.

Pedagogically, I take a constructivist approach and enjoy challenging my students through discussions and thought provoking case studies.

Teaching responsibilities

I teach modules on different criminal psychology topics such as psychopathy and forensic assessment.
