Personal profile




I am a Teaching Fellow within the Institute of  Criminal Justice Studies. My area of expertise is Penology, mostly offender rehabilitation, and resettlement. I have worked at HMP/YOI Bronzefield, a closed women's prison in Ashford, UK, as well as conducted qualitative research in Malta's only prison, Corradino Correctional Facility. I have been on a number of study visits at various European prisons including Rebbiba Prison in Rome, Zweibrücken Prison in Germany, The Pathways Centre in Dublin as well as Mountjoy, also in Dublin. 


I have been involved in a number of European Projects, the lastest being FAIR (Fighting Against Inmate Radicalisation) and SkillHUBS, based in prison education. I am a member on two Working Groups - one on Formal Education in Prison and another on Employment for Inmates -  within a European Social Fund Project (P4E@CCF).

I have an active interest in anything relating to prisons, especially prison education, as well as radicalisation and terrorism.
