Chloé is a doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford’s Centre for Criminology. Her research investigates the epistemology of mental incapacity in American capital punishment trials, post-1952. Chloé’s research is generously supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (“ESRC”) and the Amelia Jackson Senior Scholarship (Exeter College, Oxford); her project is supervised by Professor Carolyn Hoyle.

Prior to starting her doctorate, Chloé conducted research for The Death Penalty: A Worldwide Perspective (2014), a leading work in the field of death penalty studies authored by Professors Roger Hood and Carolyn Hoyle. Concurrently, she investigated capital punishment cases as a member of the “Death Penalty Team” at the UK-based legal action charity, Reprieve. 

In addition to her research, Chloé teaches a summer course in criminology for undergraduate students from the University of Virginia, held at University College, Oxford. The course juxtaposes British and American approaches to crime and punishment and covers criminological theories, criminal justice responses, and problematic aspects related to the punishment of vulnerable offenders.

Chloé holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters of Philosophy in Contemporary History from the University of Florence, with First Class Honours, along with a Masters of Science in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Oxford, with Distinction.
