Personal profile


I primarily teach and support students on the distance learning Community Justice Degree, which is part of the Probation Officer qualification framework (PQIP). I am module co-ordinator for L6 dangerous offenders and public protection, and L5 distance-learning youth crime modules. I undertake further undergraduate teaching on the youth justice system and deliver post-graduate seminars on managing dangerous offenders. I am passionate about reflecting the challenging transition of theory, politics and policy into community justice practice.


I graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2010 with a BSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice. I practiced as a Probation Officer for 7 years and have specialisms in managing offenders subject to public protection measures including those convicted of terrorism and sexual offending, as well as the effective management of young adult offenders. I completed my MSc in Criminology & Criminal Justice in 2017 via distance learning with the University of Portsmouth.

I worked in the Ministry of Justice headquarters in project management teams for the youth justice reform programme and then EU exit. I returned to Probation in 2019 and spent almost 2 years there as a Senior Probation Officer in MTC - Thames Valley Community Rehabiliation Company.
