Professor Burman has a long-standing research interest in violence against women, in particular the criminal justice response to rape, sexual assault and domestic violence. She has allied research interests in the areas of gender, crime and criminal justice with a particular interest in young women and girls at risk of being drawn into the criminal justice system.

When her honour was announced in this year's Birthday Honours list, she said: "I am absolutely delighted and also rather overwhelmed by this honour. It is wonderful to be recognised in this way, but the award also reflects the work and support of colleagues in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow and especially in the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) who have contributed so much to the growth and vibrancy of Criminology in Scotland.”
