I am a Research Fellow in the Universities' Police Science Institute. I spent 18 years working in clinical research in the pharmaceutical industry before moving into social science, studying for a master's degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Surrey. I was a Research Fellow for the Signal Crimes Research team throughout the National Reassurance Policing Programme and contributed to the development of i-NSI, an operational methodology for the collection and analysis of signal crimes within communities. My research interests centre on the use of community intelligence to inform policing interventions at a number of levels, from neighbourhood reassurance to the impact of critical incidents.

My research interests centre on the use of community intelligence to inform policing interventions at a number of levels, from neighbourhood reassurance to the impact of critical incidents. I am currently contributing to projects involving the development of SENSOR, a tablet application of the I-NSI methodology and SENTINEL, for the analysis of social media data.  Other recent work includes evaluations of the work of Police Community Support Officers and of the use of restorative interventions for neighbourhood justice.
