Personal Statement:

I studied at the University of Sheffield (BA in Psychology) and then the University of Kent at Canterbury (MSc in Forensic Psychology). I then held research posts at the University of Liverpool, working with Professor James and the University of Leicester (in conjunction with the University of Liverpool), with Professor Clive Hollin, Dr. Emma Palmer and Professor James McGuire, working on evaluations of community based cognitive skills programmes. In 2003, I took up a Lectureship at the University of Leicester and in 2009 completed my PhD (University of Liverpool) on the correlates of attrition from offending behaviour programmes. I am the co-Lead of the Leicester Prisons Research Network which aims to deliver ambitious and innovative prisons research that crosses disciplinary boundaries. Recent funders includes the Ministry of Justice, the British Psychological Society, the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account, the ESRC Impact Development Fund, the ESRC Strategic Partnership Fund, the Health Foundation, and the Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise Development Fund.
