Sarah Armstrong is a Professor of Criminology at Glasgow University.
Her research focuses on prisons and punishment, including penal practices and policy, prison health and popular cultural representations. A separate area of interest has been about experiences of justice – what does justice mean, look like and feel like to people in different situations? She is a former Director of SCCJR (2016-19).
