Biography

I am a lecturer in Criminology and Programme leader for the BA (hons) Criminology programme at Edinburgh Napier University. My research interests cover a range of areas but are primarily related to identity in both criminal justice and educational contexts. I am currently module leader for Violence and Society, Violence and Society (Hong Kong), and Criminal Justice in Practice.

I am passionate about understanding and giving a voice to the lived experiences of those with convictions. In criminology, my interests lie in the following areas: experiences of imprisonment; mental health; understanding violent offending; masculinities and violence; desistance from crime; treatment and management of violence; justice involved veterans. My research skills and experience lie in qualitative research, particularly with vulnerable populations and in institutional settings.

I am also interested in the scholarship of learning and teaching, and pedagogic research. I am interested in concepts of identity at university for both academics and students. I am currently leading aspects of the QAA Scotland Enhancement Themes sector cluster on Enhancing Support for Programme Leadership, as well the ENU institutional work on Community and Belonging at university.
