Before joining Middlesex University in 2019, I did a PhD in Forensic Psychiatry at Utrecht University. I have also worked as a researcher at the Prison Psychiatric Unit Amsterdam, the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement, and the University of Oxford.
My main research areas are violent behavior in people with psychotic disorders and the neurobiology of violence.
I am the module leader for CRM2270 Contemporary Criminological Theory, CRM4207 Research Strategies in Criminology and Psychology, and CRM4203 Psychological Interventions and Responses to Offending. I also teach on the module SOC2500 Approaches to Research in the Social Sciences, and supervise undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations.
