I've worked at Sheffield Hallam University since March 2006 a Senior Lecturer in Criminology.
Prior to me joining the Criminology Subject Group, I worked as a Lecturer in Criminology at Nottingham Trent University and a Research Fellow at the University of Sheffield.
My teaching includes: race, ethnicity, culture and crime; gender and crime/criminal justice; human rights of women and children, criminological theories; international crime and justice; comparative criminologies and criminal justice; philosophies of research and the use of qualitative methods in criminological research.
Department Of Law and Criminology

Research interests include: race, ethnicity, culture & crime, gender & crime, especially focusing on minority ethnic girls and criminality. Other interests include international criminology, issues of human rights and social justice concerning girls and women. Further specialisms lie in qualitative research in the area of biographical and ethnographic approaches as well as criminology theories and philosophies.
I am the co-chair of the Human Rights and Social Justice cluster, where I am currently working with colleagues on a project focusing on radicalisation.
