I joined Oxford Brookes as Lecturer in Criminology in 2017 prior to which I was Sessional Lecturer in Law at the University of Reading. I completed my ESRC-funded DPhil at Green Templeton College and the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford. I have an ESRC-funded MSc (Distinction) from Hertford College and the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford and an LLB  (First Class Hons) from the School of Law, University of Edinburgh.

I research visual, material and aural (sensorial) cultures of crime and their interplay with different temporalities from the nineteenth century to the digital age.
