Senior Research Assistant
University of South Wales

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.
