Personal profile


As lecturer I am fully involved in the organisation and delivery of the MSc Forensic Psychology & Mental Health.  This includes teaching, supervision of students, administration of programme, marking and examining, module lead, and academic advisor. 

I am a Chartered Psychologist and criminal justice health researcher.  I have experience of Randomised Controlled Trials, intervention development and a range of mixed-methods approaches.

Research interests

I am an experienced trial and research project manager, having successfully managed a number of Randomised Controlled Trials within criminal justice settings. 

My research focuses on improving health outcomes for people in contact with the Criminal Justice System by influencing policy, practice and service delivery. I am specifically interested in children and young people in contact with the Criminal Justice System.  My research lookes at developing and evaluating complex interventions, using mixed-method theory-led evaluation approaches to understand and articulate how interventions work. I have a particular interest in the use of realist approaches in  evaluation to inform implementation. My research interests also include violence risk, psychopathy and neurodevelopmental disorders.

I supervise PhD and MSc students on projects relating to my research interests and am always happy to discuss potential research projects with students hoping to carry out PhD or postdoctoral research.

We developed the Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool (CHAT). Prior to CHAT there was no standardised approach to assessing the health needs of young people within the secure estate, with the introduction of the CHAT all young people on admission to the secure estate now have a CHAT assessment completed within 10 days of admission.  If the young people move around the secure estate, their health assessment travels with them, meaning that assessments are not repeated. The CHAT has now been implemented within all Young Offender Institutions, Secure Training Centres and Secure Children's Homes in England.
