I am a PhD student exploring the policing (both formal and informal) of race within 'Greenshire's' night-time economy. My research involved an ethnography alongside police officers, door staff, venue managers and street pastors and highlights how the night time economy continues to be policed along racial lines.
I hold an MA in Criminology (awarded Distinction) with the Department of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research at the University of Kent. My MA research explored the changing attitudes towards young women’s intoxicated behaviour and the impacts this had on the policing of women on nights out.
I previously worked as an Intelligence Analyst for the police and as a Senior Analyst for the NHS.
