  • About

    I studied criminology at Sheffield Hallam and graduated in 2007. From 2007-9 I attended the University of Manchester to study part-time for a Masters degree (MRes) in socio-legal and criminological research methods. During the period 2008-11 I was employed as a research assistance on a Nuffield funded research project that investigated medical-negligence claims. I also worked part-time for King's College London, investigating young people's pyscho-social function in young offender institutions. In 2009 I also began teaching criminology at SHU, as an associate lecturer, in addition, in a similar role I also taught at Leeds Metropolitan University.

    In 2011 I won an ESRC scholarship to study for a PhD in criminology, focusing my doctoral research on desistance from criminality and recovery from alcoholism amongst a long-term abstinent cohort of members of Alcoholics Anonymous.
