Research overview

My areas of research expertise include domestic and sexual violence, policing and more broadly violence against women and girls. I have particular research experience in the policing of and other agency responses to domestic and sexual violence, women's pathways into crime and experiences of co-offending, coercive control, Clare's Law/ domestic violence disclosure schemes and media & legal representations of criminalised women. 

Impact and collaboration are central to my research. My work has been used to inform policy developments, professional practice and I engage regularly with practitioners and professionals through my research.
