Personal profile

Academic Background

My socio-legal research focuses on bureaucracies and immigration. My PhD thesis investigates the construction and negotiation of the UK border through immigration decision-making, and I am particularly interested in the involvement of state and non-state actors in bordering processes.
I use qualitative research methods to capture the 'multi-modal' nature of asylum decision-making, and employ criminological and sociological theories and perspectives in my research.
For Academic Year 2021/2 I taught on LAW4005B – Principles of Criminal Law
For Academic Year 2022/3 I will be teaching on LAW Z6023B – Crime & Sentencing

I also hold a MSc in Global Criminology from Birkbeck, University of London, and a MA from the University of Edinburgh. My PhD research is SeNSS (ESRC) funded.
