I am a doctoral candidate (post-viva), and researcher in law and science with the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science. My doctoral study explores the interactions between scientific expertise and law, focussing on the ways in which particular governance models may shape the construction of DNA profiling evidence. I am also interested in the use of Bayesian networks to reconstruct evidential narratives, efficient forms of ‘streamlined’ forensic reporting, and the effects of ‘economic rationalisation’ on access to justice. Theoretical and methodological interests include legal autopoiesis, governmentality, theories of expertise, and visual legal research methods.


Marketisation of forensic science provision in England & Wales; Streamlined Forensic Reporting; regulation and standardisation of forensic science provision.
