I am a teaching fellow in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
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 am also working on obtaining my Associate Fellowship in Advance HE at the end of February.
I have a background as a research assistant on two separate projects. One regarding restorative justice and the use of emotional language by young offenders in the effectiveness of the conference. The other involved the creation of a database of contact sexual offences for the purpose of preventative research.
