Ph.D. student, Department of Law and Criminology


I am currently a first year Ph.D. student in Sheffield Hallams Criminology and Law Department. I am based in the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice. 
My Ph.D. is multidisciplinary and funded by the European Union’s Horizon 20/20 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska Curie grant agreement. 
My project will consider the status of asylum seekers, and those under criminal justice system supervision across the EU, many of whom are often subjected to rigorous forms of state monitoring. One of the principal goals of my research will be to influence asylum and penal policy at a local, national and global level.


Currently an Assistant Lecturer in the module Criminological Landscapes.
