Miss Laura Sibret


I obtained my Bachelor with Honours in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Griffith University in 2018 and my Master in Criminological Research from Cambridge University in 2020. My first thesis was focused on exploring prevention mechanisms for child sexual abuse, utilising offenders as a source of expert knowledge, through a situational crime prevention framework. The second involved understanding the types of relationships that sex offenders develop while imprisoned on a vulnerable prisoners unit and the types of support they offer each other as it has a significant impact on their prison experience which influences the reintegration process. Currently, I am writing a PhD proposal in the area of prevention of sexual offending with an online component. I have also obtained my Associate Fellowship in Advance HE as of March 2022.
