My work explores the regulation of sexuality, criminal law and criminal justice, technologies and biopolitics, feminist and queer theory.
I joined Goldsmiths in 2019 from Royal Holloway, University of London, where I was a Senior Lecturer in Criminology and Law. I completed my PhD in Law at the University of Reading in 2015, and before this an MA in Gender and Culture at Goldsmiths and a BA in English Language & Literature from University of Leeds. I converted my first degree to Law at University of Westminster.
My current research examines the intersection of sexuality and cultures of drug use. This is the focus of a project funded by the British Academy/Leverhulme Trust for 2021-22, and was previously funded by the Wellcome Trust.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and convene Criminal Law and Tort for the LLB. I am also currently Director of Research and Postgraduate Research for the Department of Law.
