Research Projects

News & Events

My areas of research include domestic and sexual violence, policing, and feminist sociolegal studies.

I have particular research expertise in the policing of domestic and sexual violence, victim-survivors, criminal and procedural justice, emerging forms of abuse such as cyberflashing and image-based sexual abuse, and feminist theory. My work to date has involved a range of qualitative and mixed-method studies, including police ethnography, data and case file analysis, and working closely with victim-survivors, for example via interviews or expert by experience panel consultations.
