About me

About me

My work includes research, writing and activism that aims to challenge processes of criminalisation and punitive responses to ‘crime’ . It questions and explores concepts of 'justice', what this means in practice - and how it is defined by and through collective action.

Ongoing work and research interests focus on: Transformative Justice and Abolitionism; Collective aid and community engagement; Gender and the criminal legal system; Confronting Criminalising Processes and Practices; Exploitation and Responses to 'Human Trafficking': constructing 'problems' and policy responses, Creating and sustaining 'communities of recovery'.

Interested in supervising students with a critical approach to theory and methods; expertise in qualitative research and analysis.
