Research Assistant in Youth Justice
I was appointed as a Research Assistant in June 2018 to work on a project funded by the Nuffield Institute on the pathways into and out of custody for children in care. I am currently completing my PhD on the criminalisation of children in care. Prior to this, I worked in Associate Lecturer roles at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester College, and as a Knowledge Exchange Officer at the University of Oxford.
Before my academic career commenced, I worked for many years in the criminal justice system as a Senior Policy Adviser for the Youth Justice Board, Team Manager in a Youth Offending Team, and as a Probation Officer in both custody and the community.
