I am a lecturer in Criminology under the College of Business, Law and Social Sciences. My research interests are centered around domestic abuse, my current research seeks to explore older women's experiences of domestic abuse, utilising qualitative methods. The overarching aim is to investigate and challenge the contemporary position of domestic abuse, to create an improved theoretical understanding and to inform the development of risk assessment. 

My previous research has addressed areas of social justice such as police relations with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities, with a specific emphasis on barriers to engagement. I have conducted qualitative research into pedagogy and consumerism which examined the influence of internal and external factors on the higher education system.

My postgraduate research focused on mentoring programmes within youth justice and the conceptualisation of engagement.
