Lecturer

Biography

I joined the University in September 2016, just after submitting my PhD at the University of Edinburgh.

My research interests include criminal justice in Scotland (particularly justice policy), community penalties (probation/criminal justice social work) and the development of local-oriented 'partnership' approaches in criminal justice, including the role played by local governments. I'm also interested by the turn towards using Bourdieu in criminology, particularly the development of the 'penal field'.

I also work in researching restorative justice in Scotland, as co-investigator on projects with Dr Giuseppe Maglione. Most recently, I have embarked on researching local partnership working in Scotland, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

I would be keen to supervise PhDs on these or related topics - please feel free to contact me to discuss.
