Biography

My research focuses on the relationships between individuals and institutions, often linking to my previous experience in policy work around justice and gender-based violence. I received my PhD in Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh, investigating how the police apologise in responding to public complaints. I am currently working on Pillar 3 of Operation Soteria, Embedding a procedural justice approach to police engaging victims of sexual violence, funded by the Home Office.
