Claudia Stoicescu

Research Associate


Dr Claudia Stoicescu is a Research Associate in the Centre for Criminology, which she joined in December 2019 as a researcher on the project Elites’ opinions on the death penalty in Indonesia. This research, led by Professor Carolyn Hoyle, in association with the Death Penalty Project, London and the Community Legal Aid Institute, Jakarta, aims to better understand the attitudes of political, academic and criminal justice elites on the death penalty and explore how these shape policy and practice. 

Dr Stoicescu received her D.Phil in Social Intervention (2018) from the University of Oxford’s Department of Social Policy and Intervention, where she remains an Associate Member. Her doctoral research, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation, used community-based participatory approaches to explore the intersections between substance use, HIV and gender-based violence in the first large-scale representative study of women who inject drugs in Indonesia. She is presently based in Jakarta, Indonesia as an International Visiting Scholar at Atma Jaya University’s HIV/AIDS Research Centre. Her current work examines the impact of policing practices on health outcomes and access to health care among people who drugs.
