Senior Research Associate, Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge

Dr Susie Hulley was awarded a PhD from the University of London in 2008 for her thesis on the perceptions and experiences of anti-social behaviour (ASB) amongst adults and young people and police responses to ASB. Susie joined the Institute of Criminology as a Research Associate in 2007, initially to work on a study examining the values, practices and outcomes in public and private sector prisons and providing analytical support to the National Offender Management Service. In more recent years, Susie has been co-investigator on a major ESRC funded study of the experiences of prisoners serving very long sentences from a young age (with Ben Crewe and Serena Wright) and a large ESRC funded study of conceptions of friendship and violence and legal consciousness in the context of ‘joint enterprise’ (with Tara Young). Susie’s current project (with Ben Crewe and Serena Wright), funded by the ESRC, involves following up the men and women sentenced to life imprisonment at a young age, who were interviewed for the original study, to understand their experience of long-term imprisonment during the intervening years. Susie has supervised students on the Diploma and MSt in Applied Criminology, Penology and Management, the MPhil in Criminology and Criminological Research, and the Criminology, Sentencing and the Penal System paper (BA Law) and has taught research methods to PhD Criminology students.
