I started my research career at the independent Policy Studies Institute (PSI) in London, where I undertook research in two main areas – policing and labour market studies. The former included studies of police accountability, international comparisons of police governance, private security and policing, and youth crime prevention; the latter included studies of youth unemployment, and the labour market positions of ethnic minority groups. I was a lecturer in criminology for a year in the Centre for Law and Society, Edinburgh University for the academic year 1997/8, before joining the Cardiff School of Social Sciences in 1998.

PhD Supervision

I am interested in PhD supervision in a range of areas related to policing and the governance of security - especially police accountability and commercial security. Also, in studies relating to criminal justice and penal policy-making, policy transfer and crime control, crime and tourism.

Current PhD supervisions include: Relationships between the police and Chinese communities in the UK (Chris Pac-Soo); Crime, security and regeneration in Cardiff Bay (Oliver Cowan); The local politics of 'anti-social behaviour' (Victoria Chessell-Edgar); Policing, securitization and police counter-terrorism policy (Jasmin Tregidga); Risk Assessment and Mentally Disordered Offenders (Jeremy Dixon); Violence and its regulation in professional ice hockey (Victoria Silverwood);  Piracy, fear of crime and sea-farers' welfare (Sarah Symons); Policing, Regulation and Cannabis (David Brewster); criminal defence reforms and the commercialization of the criminal process (Jodi Morgan)
