I specialise in taking a socio-legal approach to the study of crime, law and justice; primarily focusing on cultural integration and decision-making within large, complex and highly decentralised organisations. More broadly, my research interests include legitimacy and procedural justice. I also have extensive experience of working with charity groups; particularly those focused on the rehabilitation and reintegration of offenders into society.

I have a distinguished track record of research, recently participating in collaborative research projects with the Centre for Ethics in Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Bristol and the Planning and Research Development department of Avon and Somerset Constabulary.
