Dr. James Pickles PhD, MRes, BSc (Hons)

Lecturer in Criminology


I joined Sheffield Hallam in June 2018 as a lecturer in Criminology. Prior to this, I worked as an academic tutor at the University of Sunderland and as an associate lecturer at Northumbria University.

I have also worked as a youth and community worker, co-facilitating LGBT+ youth groups across the North East of England. My doctoral research explored the experiences of anti-LGBT+ hate crime across three community strands: police, voluntary sector, and students.

My current research focuses on sexuality, gender, hate, violence, and sexual health.
