Position

Strategic Professor in Criminal Justice - Matthew Flinders Distinguished Professor
Law

Biography

Trained originally as a lawyer, I spent nearly three years in legal practice before undertaking postgraduate studies in the United Kingdom and Canada. That further study was in the fields of law, criminology and social theory. My first teaching position was at Warwick University where I taught criminal law and criminology. I moved then to Brunel University, London, and then to Monash University. I joined Flinders University for the first time in 1997 as Foundation Professor of Legal Studies. Between 2009 and 2012, I held the position of Executive Director, Centre for Transnational Crime Prevention, University of Wollongong. I re-joined Flinders in late 2012 to take up my current position.
