About me

I joined Westminster Law School in 2014, having spent two years as a lecturer at the University of Reading. Prior to this, I completed a PhD at the University of Vienna, Austria, which involved social research into adolescent drug treatment in England, and analysis of UK drug law and policy. I graduated in 2013 and continue to undertake research in the areas of youth justice, criminology, drug use/policy, human rights and discrimination. Before entering academia, I worked as a newspaper journalist, mental health support worker and in the voluntary sector as a child rights officer.
