Cara is a Teaching Associate at Strathclyde University, with research interests in imprisonment, punishment, inequalities, gender and poverty.  She completed her doctorate at the University of Edinburgh in 2015, producing a study of the impact of imprisonment on families, and is currently writing a book on the same topic.  Cara was recently awarded a Leverhulme Early Career fellowship to develop new research into people’s experiences of community from within prison, the permeability of the prison wall, and the resulting implications for citizenship, legitimacy and reintegration.
