Kirsty-Louise Cameron

Lecturer in Criminology, Leeds Beckett University

I am a Lecturer in Criminology at Leeds Beckett University, with research interests related to antisocial behaviour, social housing, intersectionality, vulnerability and welfare conditionality. My teaching relates to criminal justice, intersectionality and research methods. My PhD research at the University of York is related to antisocial behaviour, using a newly developed theoretical framework of vulnerability to understand alleged perpetrator experiences of antisocial behaviour. This longitudinal research followed 15 social housing tenants over 6-9 months whilst they were alleged to be engaged in antisocial behaviour. I also have an MA in Social Research and BA Hons in Social Policy at the University of York.

Prior to starting my PhD, I worked in the social housing sector for 8 years across customer service and housing officer roles. Industry experience of antisocial behaviour and the management of social housing tenants solidified my interest in the perspectives and experiences of social tenants and, specifically, alleged perpetrators of antisocial behaviour who are rarely surveyed by their social housing providers and are often seen as a hard-to-reach population by academic researchers.
