My primary area of expertise is in Child Eyewitness Testimony and forensic interviews with children.
I also have much experience in applied research, particularly with South Yorkshire Police, for whom I have explored perceptions of policing and engagement with young people, reducing RTC's around primary schools, evaluating change in the workplace, and interventions to reduce knife crime.
I am currently working on several funded projects e.g. evaluating Youth Offending Teams, Violence Reduction Units, and exploring the effects of knife crime imagery on young people. Further, I am working to develop a measure of attitudinal shift in relation knife crime which can be used to better establish the effects of interventions aimed at preventing young people from becoming involved in knife crime.
