I have been teaching criminology in a number of educational settings since I qualified with a degree in criminology in 2007. I developed a keen interest in many aspects of criminology, the criminal justice system and mental health in relation to criminal behaviour. I am also interested in Human Trafficking in particular the trafficking of infants into and within the UK. In addition I am also interested in the multi agency approach towards ex-offenders, their rehabilitation and generally the ‘end to end’ management of offenders.
I also have an interest in research to do with teaching and learning. In 2014 – 15 I was involved within a university working group project which focused upon developing essential academic skills within a diverse student body.
I am now the Course Coordinator for the Foundation Degree program (ASS Cluster). But I have been a Senior Lecturer in Criminology for a number of years now and enjoy adopting a creative and innovative approach to teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I actively encourage students to transfer their learning from a surface approach to a deeper approach to learning so that they can develop transferable knowledge and essential academic skills in order to progress. I also firmly believe that effective and efficient pedagogical practice allows students torealise their own potential, needs and future aspirations in order to develop a sense of ‘graduateness’ whilst developing useful skills for employment .
The course units that I design and teach and my research are deeply intertwined. I passionately believe that the realties of our contemporary world and its challenges and problems make criminology one of the most important areas within all of the social sciences.
Over the past 5 years I have been involved in the following projects:
