I am a Senior Lecturer in Law at City, University of London. I am also co-founder and trustee of the Treebeard Trust.
I specialise in coercive control and the criminal law. I advise governments and activists around the world on the doctrinal implications of domestic abuse law reform, and through the Treebeard Trust support transformative initiatives to empower women affected by violence . I also run the Criminal Justice and Human Rights Centre at City, University of London.
Operation Bluestone/Soteria is happening– glad to have been a part of the team working to transform the police response to rape… my guidelines on the investigation of rape in the context of coercive control and strategic advice on where to locate domestic rape in force are now operational across all forces in England and Wales.
