Personal profile

Research Biography

I am interested in issues relevant to the criminal justice system. My research examines the social-psychological needs of perpetrators, as well as victim and community reactions to such acts, in particular, the use of punishment as a response to injustice. I also investigate the factors that lead to and maintain antisocial behaviour.

Research Interests

My current research interests include criminal justice, offender rehabilitation and reintegration, morality, and community attitudes.

My PhD research was about self-punishment, as one way that individuals may attempt to restore their moral image after violating norms.
