Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the School of Social Work and Social Policy in 2017, and have recently been awarded a Leverhulme Early Career fellowship to explore the multiple ways in which the community enters the prison, and the implications for legitimacy, citizenship and the people who reside and work within it. 

This project reflects my broader interests in imprisonment and punishment, families and relationships, and social inequalities.  I am also particularly interested in innovative, creative and collaborative research methods, and the connections between research, activism and penal reform.  

I currently teach on a number of courses across the School, including the undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in social work.
