A few words about myself
My research interests relate to the delivery of justice for children and families. I have 2 monographs published by Routledge on this theme and numerous journal articles in international peer-reviewed journals such as Child and Family Law Quarterly, European Journal of Crime, Criminal Law & Criminal Justice, Family Law, Howard Journal of Criminal Justice, International Family Law, International Journal of Children’s Rights and International Journal of Sociology & Social Policy. Methodologically my expertise ranges from systematic content analysis, qualitative interviews and focus groups, case studies and secondary analysis of datasets and archival qualitative data. I have collaborated with researchers, practitioners, NGOs and charities to develop new approaches to responding to youth offending including the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, the European Society of Criminology, the Home Office’s Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour Reduction Unit, Northern Rock Foundation, Prince’s Trust and the Standing Committee for Youth Justice. He has previously worked at Teesside University, the Open University, the University of Birmingham and the University of Limerick.
