Dr Claire Williams is an Associate professor at Swansea University and an applied researcher specialising in acquired brain injury. She is particularly interested in emotional functioning post-injury, neurobehavioral legacies, perceptions and knowledge of brain injury, and the intersection with the criminal justice system.

Her most recent research addresses the underexplored area of how individuals with a history of traumatic brain injury are perceived and evaluated in the context of the UK magistrates court. Her work emphasises the pivotal role of educational interventions in promoting fair and responsive treatment of individuals with traumatic brain injury within the criminal justice system.
