Biography

I am a Political Sociologist by training but increasingly research and teach in Criminology. I specialise in issues of globalisation and democracy, Restorative Justice, and international crimes such as genocide and Crimes against Humanity. I do a lot of work in partnership with local organisations, reviewing community projects and exploring crime reduction initiatives and this is work that often involves using students as research assistants (great for your CV!).
