Senior Lecturer

I have 14 years' experience of teaching and research in Higher Education. I have served as Head of Department in two areas at different institutions (Law, and then Criminology, Law and Policing).

My PhD examines the way in which terrorism suspects can be dealt with in the UK and United States of America. I am research active and have published in the UK and USA. My principal research interests are in terrorism, human rights and public law.

At the University, I have consulted on and set up BSc (Hons) Professional Policing.

Outside of university, I run two family businesses.



Teaching and supervision

I have extensive teaching experience across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate subjects, including Organised Crime and Terrorism, Public Law, Human Rights and Police Powers.

Research interests for potential research students

I regularly supervise postgraduate students and have supervised PhD and DProf students to completion. I am interested in hearing from students who are looking to engage in research on any area of terrorism studies.
