Amelia is a doctoral student supervised by Professor Carolyn Hoyle. Her research explores the experiences of homicide victims' families in the US, seeking to understand how the protracted capital appeals process can militate against recovery for those whose defendants are sentenced to death. Amelia is funded by an ESRC Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) Studentship.

Prior to undertaking the DPhil, Amelia completed the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Oxford. She also holds a First-Class undergraduate degree in Sociology with Criminology from the University of York, where she was awarded the York Award.
