I joined the Department of Sociology at Durham University as a Teaching Fellow in Criminology in 2018. I have previously worked as a Lecturer in Criminology at Sheffield University (2015/16) and Salford University (2016/17) where I convened undergraduate and postgraduate modules on gender-based violence, victimisation, crime and criminal justice system. Since joining the department I became member of the Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse (CRiVA) and currently co-convene the ‘Gender, Violence and Abuse’ and ‘Theorising Crime and Criminal Justice’ postgraduate modules and deliver the criminology-related workshops for second-year ‘Research Methods in Action’ module.

My doctoral thesis explored stalking and harassment victimisation documenting the effects and criminal justice system responses to this type of abuse based on victims/survivors’ accounts and experiences. My research interests include interpersonal abuse and related harms, violence against women, victimology/victimisation, criminological (qualitative) research methods, substance use and interpersonal violence.

In addition to this, I have also developed my research scholarship and expertise by publishing in journals such as the British Journal of Criminology (BJC) and International Review of Victimology (IRV) and acting as an external PhD examiner for professional doctorates in forensic psychology.
