Lecturer in Criminology, University of Auckland

I am a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Auckland. I am interested in young people and their digital lives. My research is focused around four main areas: the relationship between the internet and young people's drug use; young people’s views on sexting; their views on pornography; and finally, youth perspectives on pleasure and empowerment.

I teach in the areas of Cybercrime (PG), Critical Studies in Policing (UG), Key Issues in RJ (UG) and Crime, Media and Society (UG).
