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.
