Dr Roxana Pessoa Cavalcanti is a senior lecturer in Criminology at the University of Brighton, where she co-leads the Cities, Injustices and Resistance research group. Informed by feminist and decolonial methodologies, her research examines intersecting inequalities, harm, violence, conflict and activism in urban contexts. Since completing her PhD (2017) and taking her second career break for maternity leave (2018), she has been an active member of criminological societies and international networks, including the Urban Violence Research Network, the Feminist Urban Violence Research Collective, which she co-founded, the Criminalising Dissent Network, British Society of Criminology and European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control. Her book, published by Routledge in 2020, examines the governance of violent relations in Brazil. She is currently working on a number of collaborative projects that examine the interfaces of repression and authoritarianism in Latin America and the UK.
