I am currently undertaking a PhD 'Police response to same-gender partner abuse’. I am interested in exploring what the police response is to those experiencing same-gender partner abuse, and will be carrying out interviews with survivors, police officers and professionals who work in the field. If you are from any of the above groups and would like to take part in the research please contact me. My PhD is being carried out alongside the KTP project (see link below) looking at how the police respond to domestic abuse victims.
My research interests include gender and sexuality, domestic abuse, policing of domestic abuse and self-harm in same-sex populations.
