Prior to commencing my current position, I worked across a number of secure services, working with individuals with offending histories, mental illness, personality disorder and/or intellectual disabilities.
My doctoral research is looking at individuals who engage in online sex offences against minors, specifically those that become involved in accessing and/or downloading Child Sexual Exploitation Material (CSEM).
I am a member of onlinePROTECT [Pathways of Risk and Offender Typologies in the Exploitation of Children through Technology], a research and consultation programme on online child protection, led by Dr Hannah Merdian and Prof Derek Perkins. For more details, please visit www.onlineprotect.org.uk
