Short Biography

I am currently undertaking a PhD in Criminology at Edinburgh University within the Crime and Victimisation Strand of AQMeN. I also recieved a Scholarship from AQMeN in order to conduct this thesis, which aims to examine the changing patterns and characteristics of homicide at the aggregate level in Scotland and to determine the extent to which changes in homicide reflect the changing pattern and characteristics in violence. I have a previous bachelor's degree in criminology as well as two master degrees (one MSc and one MRes), both in criminology.
