My doctoral research explores the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender prisoners in England and Wales.
Prior to my PhD I completed an MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Oxford, having gained a first class degree in Politics, Psychology and Sociology from the University of Cambridge.
My research is funded by an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) 1+3 Studentship.
