Biography

I am an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-funded doctoral researcher at Sussex University, where I am researching domestic homicide reviews (DHRs), with a focus on how DHRs are understood, operate and are used. I am also an independent consultant and in that capacity chair DHRs. I originally trained as a social worker and an independent domestic violence advisor (IDVA). I set up the first advocacy service for gay, bisexual and heterosexual men in Wales (the Dyn Project) and have 14 years of experience in the domestic abuse sector, having worked in a range of frontline and strategic roles. Most recently, I was the Strategic Commissioner for Domestic and Sexual Violence for Brighton and Hove and East Sussex. I also serve on the Board of Respect, the United Kingdom's membership organisation for work with domestic violence perpetrators, men and young people.
