Faye is a PhD Researcher funded by the Economic and Social Research Council Doctoral Training Centre (ESRC-DTC).

I Joined the Division of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology at the University of Southampton in 2011 as an undergraduate criminology student, graduating in 2014 with First Class Honours.

Following my undergraduate studies, I was awarded the Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology Masters Scholarship from the University of Southampton and completed a Master of Science degree in Criminology. My thesis focused on the rape of sex workers, specifically exploring how prejudicial attitudes towards sexual violence undermine a sex worker’s right to claim rape victim status.

In 2016, I was awarded an ESRC +3 scholarship to study a PhD in Criminology. My doctoral research explores the life histories of men in prison who have been sexually violent towards a woman who sells sex. Its purpose is to develop an understanding of the life events and risk factors which precede men’s sexual offending against this type of victim.
