Teaching criminology and conducting interdisciplinary and comparative research
I started at Sheffield Hallam University as a Lecturer in Criminology in September 2015. I have undergraduate and masters degrees in forensic psychology, a masters in criminal justice, and a PhD in criminal justice (violence).
I have worked hands-on with research for a number of years, doing psychological, legal, and criminological research in the United States.I have been involved in developing large and small research projects and has extensive experience with secondary data management, including health individual and national level health data. My primary research interests revolve around violence (micro and macro level), alcohol/drug use, theory integration, comparative research and research methods.
I enjoy teaching on a variety of topics, such as criminological theory, research methods/statistics, criminal justice, and violence. I especially like teaching from a comparative perspective.
