Teaching & Research

Teaching & Research

Teaching Interests

My teaching interests include theoretical perspectives on sexual and domestic violence; the recognition and response to sexual violence, research skills, and minorities and violence.

Research Interests

My main research interests are centred around adolescent violent victimisation by intimate partners. Stemming from this I am interested in gender and intimate violence, sexual minorities and intimate violence, the relationship between mental health and violence, and victimisation of interpersonal violence. I am also interested in criminological research methodology and its evolving nature; management of risk and queer criminology.
