Biography

I have been in my present role with LJMU since August, 2015 and lead on modules in Terrorism/Counter Terrorism at both under and post-graduate level. I am also the programme leader for Distance Learning, as offered by the Liverpool Centre for Advanced Policing Studies at LJMU.

Prior to LJMU, I was a Senior Lecturer in Policing with Teesside University and during that time I delivered programmes to West Mercia Police; the Royal Military/RAF Police and the Rwandan National Police; in addition to campus-based undergraduate teaching, which included delivery for the Criminology subject group.

I am an author in the area of policing/criminal justice/terrorism and a regular contributor to live media such as BBC local radio; BBC Tees, BBC Radio Newcastle, BBC Radio Stoke, BBC Radio Merseyside, BBC Radio Foyle, BBC Coventry and Warwick, BBC Wiltshire and BBC Radio Scotland; National Radio:- BBC '5 Live', LBC and Sputnick Radio stations and television channels:- BBC News Channel, BBC 1, BBC North West Tonight, Sky News; CNBC, TRT World, France 24, Deutche Welle and Russia Today, in respect of policing, terrorism and kindred matters (See List Below).

Prior to working in the higher education sector, I was a police officer with Merseyside Police retiring in the rank of Inspector.

In September, 2017 I was awarded a Chief Officer Commendation by Merseyside Police having assisted in the LJMU delivery of the Police Knowledge Fund in partnership with Merseyside Police as follows:-

'For professionalism and commitment to supporting the development of police officers and staff through evidenced based research thus creating a more efficient and effective service for the communities of Merseyside'
