 Brief description of your activity focus
Understanding and preventing sexual violence and abuse

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My research interests focus on understanding and preventing sexual violence and abuse against adults, young
people and children. I am interested in addressing questions such as: What gives rise to sexual violence and abuse?
How can we identify at-risk individuals and groups? How can we prevent sexual violence and abuse from
occurring or reoccurring?

My research has explored violent and abusive behaviour using quantitative and qualitative approaches, ranging
from investigating violent offenders self-perceptions and (in)consistencies with police views to collaborative
research with West Yorkshire Police and the University of Leeds to evaluate police interviews of men suspected of
committing sexual offences against children.

Currently, my primary projects are the Sexual Thoughts Project (STP) and the Addressing Sexual Bullying Across
Europe (ASBAE) project. The STP is a detailed survey of mens sexual thoughts, which aims to further our
understanding of if/how sexual thoughts are related to sexual offending behaviours. The STP includes international
data from over 6000 men and is an ongoing collaboration with Mitch Waterman at the University of Leeds. The
ASBAE project (a collaboration predominantly with Kate Milnes at Leeds Beckett University and five NGOs) is
funded by the European Commission and is also multinational. The project aims to explore young people’s
awareness and experiences of sexual bullying across five European countries and to develop a peer-led interactive
workshop programme to help young people to recognise and address sexual bullying.
