Approach to teaching

I teach criminology to undergraduate students. I predominantly use traditional teaching techniques like lectures, seminars, and workshops. I try to make them interactive, and I place a lot of emphasis on methodology, as well as contemporary examples in all areas of my teaching. The modules that I am teaching on for the academic year 2021/2022, include: 


SS427 – Criminal Justice Matters

SS659 – Critical Addiction Studies for Criminology

SS425 – Theories of Crime

SS563 – Punishment, Power and the State
