Dr Jacqueline Gray
In the last two years I have taken over as the Programmme Leader for the BPS accredited MSc Forensic Psychology. I also teach forensic psychology at undergraduate level and pursue my research interests which centre around the operation of justice - particularly in the contexts of sexual vioence and terrorism.
In September 2011, together with colleagues Miranda Horvath and Susan Hansen, I organised the very successful inaugral Sexual Violence Conference at Middlesex University. Building on this success, we are now running two sexual violence workshops for the British Psychological Society, and are planning a second conference for 2013.
