Reader in Criminal and Penal Justice
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.
I have worked for more than 20 years at the University of Cambridge. A barrister by training, I also sit as a Recorder (part-time judge) in the Crown Court and am a Bencher of the Middle Temple.
