Lecturer and academic tutor

I'm a Lecturer in the Faculty of Education and Society and an academic tutor in Criminology. I have a Masters degree in Law and I'm currently undertaking a PhD in Criminology here at the University. The topic of my research is the use of images of violence and the recording of crime by young offenders in their criminal behaviour.

Teaching and supervision

I am a Lecturer, Pathway Leader and module leader for the Integrated Foundation Year for Social Sciences and Law. I teach on the Justice for Young People module on BSc (Hons) Criminology.

Research interests for potential research students

My research is in the impact and influence of digital images used in criminal behaviour by young offenders. I am approaching the study by adopting the framework of cultural criminology that seeks to understand crime in the context of its culture.


I am undertaking a PhD in Criminology and will investigate the reasons why young offenders use images on social media to portray their criminal behaviour.
