I am an Assistant Professor at Coventry Law School and an Associate of the Centre for Financial and Corporate Integrity at Coventry University (CFCI). I am also Sessional Lecturer in Conflict, Crime and Justice at Imperial College London and Visiting Professor at Nebrija University Madrid.
At Coventry University I am the founding director of the Global Integrity Research Network (GIRN), an interdisciplinary and international network of academics, professionals and public servants committed to the study of corruption, the promotion of integrity and the improvement of anti-corruption measures.
My main research area is global crime and the globalisation of criminal law and justice. Within this broad area, I am specifically interested in national and transnational integrity and corruption, international terrorism and the influence of science and technology on the development of a future global legal system.
I am currently developing two main research projects. One on the criminogenic effects of the law and one on the scientific foundations of global law.
