Her research interests centre on the efficacy of non-state actors’ role/s in the design and implementation of anti-money laundering measures. In particular, she is interested in examining the relationship between those non-state actors afforded policing responsibilities and state authorised law enforcement mechanisms. More broadly, she is interested in examining non-state actors’ roles in criminal justice as states attempt to balance economic stability and societal need. Such balance becomes more complex as there is tension between social norms in a cross jurisdictional context. Following on from this, it is her intention to continue her research to examine more closely the consequences of digital evolution on the development and enforcement of criminal law.
She is willing to supervise postgraduate research in the following areas:
Scottish Criminal law
Justice and Home Affiairs
Transnational Crime Control
