Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

My main area of expertise lies in criminal careers. I have an interest in early forms of aggressive behaviour such as bullying and how we can support young people to desist from crime.



Current research activities

I am currently working on an Erasmus+ funded project on preventing prejudice-based bullying in Europe.


Desired research direction

I am interested in how bullying can be prevented through the use of digital serious games.

Target collaborative organisations

International Observatory on School Violence



Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

Prior to joining UWS, I was an analyst in the Scottish Government where I gained experience in conducting both process and outcome evaluations. I can help organisations develop robust and realistic evaluations using tools such as logic modelling and intervention mapping. I have a research interest particularly in experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations and could provide consultancy in this area.
