I am a Lecturer in Criminology and Policing at Glasgow Caledonian University and I am also a Co-Director of the Scottish Cold Case Unit at GCU where we work with Locate International and Police Scotland reviewing unsolved cases involving missing people and unidentified remains, I have a background in forensic investigation, financial investigation and intelligence analysis and I have worked with offenders in community and custodial settings, and designed and delivered training to practitioners in a range of disciplines. I also teach criminology at the Open University and I am the Chief Operating Officer at Locate International. I have a PhD in Criminology, where my research used social network analysis to explore the groups and networks involved in child sexual exploitation in England.


I have previously undertaken research in child sexual exploitation, education approached to burnout and post traumatic stress disorder in the police, domestic abuse and sexual violence, child criminal exploitation, and human trafficking in Scotland.

I am currently involved in research on missing Vietnamese adults in the UK, staff understanding of gender based violence in higher education institutions, emotional labour and public protection policing, sexual violence and young people in Scotland, and domestic homicide in Scotland.
