Personal profile

Summary

I am a Teaching Fellow at the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies specialising in Criminology and Criminal Justice.

Research Interests

My research interests are wide-ranging due to my background experience. My areas of interest are as follows:

  • The development and application of criminological theory
  • Collection and analysis of Quantitative Data
  • Child Protection (including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect)
  • Honour-based violence
  • Race, ethnicity and crime
  • Family and society
  • Student engagement and learning in Higher Education

Currently I am working on a project to explore student understanding of marking criteria. This project aims to investigate whether active learning opportunities which allow students to engage with the assessment criteria can enhance understanding of assessment expectations and marking criteria.
