My research interests are in historical criminology and criminal justice history, focusing primarily on female criminality in modern Britain. I am especially interested in women's involvement in violent and/or organised crime, as well as female experiences of recidivism and desistance. My research also reflects interests in social data science, with my work applying computational methods, including social network analysis and programming techniques, to explore historical and contemporary criminal behaviours.
