Her research interests include probation practice, desistance from offending, supervising offenders ‘through-the-gate’ and in the community, and providing support to prisoners and their families. She supervises graduate and undergraduate students.
The focus of her doctoral research was probation supervision in the context of the increased use of voluntary sector organisations and private companies in the delivery of offender management.
