Her research is supervised by Professor Carolyn Hoyle and is jointly funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (UK) and the Amelia Jackson Senior Studentship (Exeter College, Oxford). Chloé's dissertation explores the historical development of expert and lay notions of mental illness and criminal responsibility in American capital punishment trials in the 20th century.  

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.

In addition to her research, Chloé teaches a 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.
