Research interests

My interests are in understanding public perceptions of the police, crime and the criminal justice system, with a particular focus on public confidence in the police, police legitimacy, fear of crime and public engagement with policing. I have an interest in quantitative methods, applying advanced quantitative techniques to explore these criminological areas and I was a co-investigator of the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods (2011-2014 and 2014-2017).
