Broadly speaking, my research investigates issues at the nexus of psychology and the criminal justice system. My research examines the social-psychological needs of transgressors, particularly the way that people process feelings of guilt and shame. I also research the functions and effects of community reactions to injustice, such as retributive and restorative justice policies, and punitive attitudes towards offenders. I am also interested in the factors that lead to and maintain antisocial behaviour.
