Biography

I am a lecturer in Criminology and a member of the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research. I joined the University in October 2013 as an ESRC Future Leader Research Fellow and was appointed lecturer 2017. My most current research focused on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on punishment in Scotland, as co-stream lead on criminal justice, part of a wider research project at the University of Glasgow. I was awarded a PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2013 for my research on the meaning of long-term imprisonment. Before this, I worked as a researcher for the Criminal Justice Social Work Development Centre for Scotland and as a consultant researcher and support worker in mental health. My monograph, Lives Sentenced: Punishment, Adaptation and Desistance, was published by Palgrave in 2014.

Research interests

My main research interests are the experiences of those who are punished by the criminal justice system and the implications of these experiences for the reconfiguration of punishment.

My post-doctoral research examined how those who are repeatedly imprisoned for short periods make sense of the series of punishments they undergo. It involved up to three rounds of life history interviews with 37 men and women with long penal careers in 2014, 2016 and 2018/19. The research has been developed into a graphic novel and website, both available at my-sentence.com, as well as a learning resource for Modern Studies teaching in Scotland. For my doctoral research at the University of Edinburgh, I examined how long-term prisoners give meaning to their sentence.

Supervision

I am interested in supervising research projects in the broad areas of penology and penal change, with a particular interest in projects which focus on any of the following themes:

  • Lived experience of punishment
  • Desistance
  • Narratives
  • Abolition and radical reform
  • Punishment practices
