My research interests are focused in the areas of criminal law and criminal justice. I am currently exploring the socio-legal responses to women who commit serious offences, including homocide and sexual violence. More generally, I am also interested in violence against women, domestic violence, sexual offences and criminal legal and gender theory.

Research Interests

Criminal law and criminal justice (sexual offences, homicide, domestic abuse), gender (masculinities, femininities, gender and crime, gender theories) and criminal legal and criminological theories
