Job Title: Senior Research Assistant
Institution: University of South Wales
Telephone: 01443 483607
I joined WISERD as a Senior Research Assistant in April 2016. Prior to my appointment, I was a researcher with Cardiff University’s Violence Research Group, with whom I obtained my doctorate and held a short Research Associate position. I undertook a BSc and MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of South Wales (previously the University of Glamorgan) between 2007 and 2011, achieving an upper second-class honours degree and MSc distinction.
I am currently working on WISERD work package 3.2, which aims to use existing secondary sources of data to investigate levels of social capital within local Welsh communities in relation to changing levels of provision of key public services.
