Reader in Criminal and Penal Justice

Interests

I have a very broad academic lens, interested in all things criminal, from substantive law, through procedure and evidence to sentencing, and what goes on in prison (and post-sentence enforcement generally).  I am engaged in both ‘hard’ law and in socio-legal-criminological research, in England and in Europe.  My main research interest is sentencing law, especially into the law and practice of release from (and recall to) prison.
