Personal profile

Biography

In January 2012 I was appointed Principal Lecturer and Subject Leader in Criminology, having initially joined the University of Huddersfield in August 2007 as a Senior Lecturer in Criminology. During this time I have worked as Divisional academic admissions officer (2007-2009) and the course leader for the BSc (Hons) Criminology (2009-2012).

Prior to this I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Wales, Bangor (now Bangor University). Whilst studying for my PhD in Criminology exploring how sex offenders experience institutional life, as exemplified in a Probation Approved Premises, I worked as a qualitative research officer with the Institute of Medical and Social Care Research; first with the North Wales Research and Development Support Service (NWRDSS) and latterly with its successor, the All Wales Alliance for Research and Development in health and social care (AWARD). In this role I worked in mixed-method, multi-disciplinary research teams on a number of projects, the most notable of which evaluated the Carers Strategy in both England and Wales (funded by the Department of Health and Welsh Assembly Government).

Between 2002-7 I taught on the BA and MA courses in Criminology and Sociology at the University of Wales, Bangor as well as a distance-learning project supervisor for Masters level students at the Department of Criminology, Leicester University.
